Daniel, sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this.
Now that I've had a chance to think about it, I agree that
this is the right thing to do.  Only I'd like to make it
a separate "if" and just goto quit -- since it is not 
related to the "if" that's in there now.  Is that OK
with you?

If you want you can just check in your patch as is, 
and I'll make mine as a separate change.
