That's great - it's still odd we've not ever seen a bug report on it
which is my point. I don't like it when I hear the words:
"obviously wrong" and "plain wrong" and no one can find a bug that
anyone has seen to PROVE this point.
It gets my hackles up that we're fixing things that might be in a "I've
been relying on that bug" place.
but I read the example cases and I said "sure let's give the patch a
shot and see what happens".
hopefully nothing happens, but I'm not that optimistic of a person.
