May I suggest, once again, that we try to define what an ``obvious
fix'' is?  Here's the definition used by GDB:

    An "obvious fix" means that there is no possibility that anyone will
    disagree with the change. [...]

    A good mental test is "will the person who hates my work the most be
    able to find fault with the change" - if so, then it's not obvious
