Cool - does that mean it was a bug and was fixed, or did it just
happen to disappear due to some other improvement?  Either way...
'bout how long does it take till things go from CVS to a release,
these days.  I've tried twice to build from CVS, but never seem
to have gotten a full build to run w/no errors (not to mention having
a woefully inadequate machine to build such a project on...(sigh)).
Such is life...:^).

    In the marketplace of "Real goods", capitalism is limited by safety
    regulations, consumer protection laws, and product liability.  In
    the computer industry, what protects consumers (other than vendor
    good will that seems to diminish inversely to their size)?
