That's ok.  I hate stamp files.

This has been applied.  I had to massage it slightly to work with the
new layout but it seems to work fine.

It was just in the nick of time, too.  I used this to debug the problem
that Corinna was reporting.  Without this patch I would have had to revert
the __builtin_memset assignment so that it would work with the C compiler
from the CD.
