I've _repeatedly_ expressed that I would like to see a release candidate
from the MC_4_6_1_PRE tree and have that tested for a week or two to
stamp out any serious bugs that people might find. Minor fixes and other
improvements can go into 4.6.2.

By the way, a serious bug *was* stamped out by Pavel Tsekov, so an
update to latest MC_4_6_1_PRE would be a good thing.

See above for an added fix. Apart from putting a tarball in a download
tree some sort of announcement on the home page at ibiblio and Savannah
would be a good idea to draw people's attention.
