The bugs mentioned in this report do not affect everybody.  505 fixed a
few bugs sure, but it created a new one which WOULD affect everybody.  506
fixed that, but had a problem with glibc builds which could not be fixed
this weekend.

hop said he'd fix it today.  Provided that it doesn't break anything else
(it shouldn't, this it is a short/simple patch I'm told) I'll upload it
tonight.  Need to be sure it works first.

I've downgraded the bug's priority a notch.  It probably shouldn't be RC
anyway.  (there's a potential DoS condition that is fixed in 505 that
nobody has come up with an exploit for yet which needs to be fixed in
potato in case someone can..)
