Thanks for taking the trouble to track down your problem and provide
a fix.  I'll let Alan check the actual change and decide if it's
safe enough.

But I just want to take the opportunity to say that all this CC style
business is much too complex for its own sake, and as a result we've
seen and keep seeing new problems that require additional hacks on top
of hacks to try and "fix" things.  I don't have the time/energy to
devote to cleaning this up, but it really needs a rethink and redesign
so that we can simplify the whole thing, thus removing warts rather than
working around them.
