Ok, so it's now "tested" in the sense that it works for me, and fixes both my and your test-cases. Which doesn't mean that it is bug-free of course, but it does seem to be a sane patch that actually cleans things up. I'll delay committing it in case somebody hollers, but I think I'll mark it for stable too since this issue seems age-old, and the fix looks good. Ack/nak? Can anybody find anything wrong in that patch?
