Sorry Frans. I didn't get what you mean.

The last package fixes two important bugs and then I do think it's
suitable for Etch. He did a nice work working and testing the solution
and the bug reporter also tested it and it does work to him.

The patch is small and not very intrusive since it just deal on the
savedefault part of code and I don't see a high regression risk on it.

The Marc reation was indeed right to ask why Leandro has change that
part of code and then Leandro has explained why he did. There's
nothing wrong here at least to me.
