I prefer the former option, so I applied your patch. I'm satisfied
with the behavior I observe now, even though the problem is only
suppressed. I think we should release the system with that change.
Should I commit the patch, or do you have a different preference?

Are you planning anymore changes to cvs before I tag the release?
Or, do you plan to tag it?
