Thanks, fixed.

Amusingly enough, you and I independently installed exactly the same code patch, byte-for-byte, nearly simultaneously. There is no difference between commits 4ba2946369cb19dfeb258839add0658c742c12a1 and 10cfb736e2d32bd2604dc93a979ce136473b5944, and Git silently merged the two when you merged your commit into master. I don't know whether to worry about our duplicative work or to re-tell the famous war story about Ritchie and Thompson; see, for example, page 4 of:

McIlroy MD. Remarks for Japan Prize award ceremony for Dennis Ritchie. 2011-05-19, Murray Hill, NJ. http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~doug/dmr.pdf
