I could have sworn I saw this patch go into SVN but it's not there now
so maybe it never did. I didn't know if I was supposed to follow this up
or check it in myself. I assumed the public SVN is readonly.
Can anyone confirm whether this patch was applied already (and then
maybe reversed) or if there is anything else I need to do.
