Be aware that I did not do this patch. Chris Wing did it. I found it
somewhere on the web, but I forgot where, I think, two or three years ago
its link was posted on security-audit list or so (for 1.3, I modified it
for 1.4.1).

Use it, do your described changes and file a bug and send the stuff to the
maintainer. This patch does no considerable harm IMHO, so it should be
used by default (if it is setup right).
