I wrote the patch.

You have good timing because we discovered a critical flaw in the patch
for bug #348888 just today.  I recommend applying the patch in bug
#348888, followed by the patch for bug #384183.  I think it should be
safe to backport to 2.6.3; it's a rewrite of some very old code.

Note that it does break the ABI of libedataserver.
