I'm personally sorry for the lack of response. We don't have a lot of
developers, and we all have a lot of things to do, and sometimes bugs
do go under the radar. The patch looks good to me, besides the
mechanical things (lack of commit message, for one). I'd poke Cosimo
or Benjamin in the morning to see if you can get a more exhaustive
review done.
