thanks for the analysis. the frozen flag, that i forgot about. this once
amended a related issue. but sure, it's just a hack :(. i'll look into
your new test some time.

yes. it would still be good to have the useful fraction of this lot on
our side. i don't believe in miracles, like an implementation without
autotools. it's a bit sad that you want to get rid of it before we have
a replacement -- no matter if it exists.

similarly: i sometimes use gcc to compile stuff. i often use processors
to compute something. there's no way to test everything, even if such
practice might reveal some bugs.
