While I acknowledge that this bug is RC, it isn't an emergency and I
don't think you need to do this.  I will consider your patch but have
been busy on a project at work that has a deadline of Wednesday, so
please hold off as if this patch is wrong it will be complicated to
unwind properly.  I promise I'll look at it ASAP after Wednesday.
