bah. there is no need to test a patch that can be mathematically proven
to be correct (which is possible only for very small programs, usually).
of course nobody will do a formal prove, and there is murphy's law, so a
simple test is needed anyway - but i suppose roland did this, right?
and if it breaks on system x for yet another lib y breakage ... who
cares? i share jakub's opinion. i'd be opposed to this patch in general
if it was not for the plainly incorrect semantics of the old code.
