 Huh all right.  I don't understand what you/he meant by that, but the
 code that was patched (the xdm shipped with 3.3.2) was broken.  In
 fact, the current code in 4.0.1 has been heavily patched to *enable*
 this functionality.  No idea when that happend, sometime between 6.3
 and 6.4 it would seem, and AFAICS, it was patched up-upstream, not by

 The patch worked based on the *number* of consecutive failures.  The
 current code works based on the *time* between failures, and it's
 rather agressive at that IMO.
