In GNU make 3.80, only the first pattern-specific variable definition

In future releases all pattern-specific variable definitions that match
are used, in the order in which they were defined.  This change has
already been made in the source.  With the latest version of GNU make
from CVS your example gives:

  $ ./make
  hello a a+b c

Thanks. I got the latest CVS and verified this. But now I have a new oddness:


david.a.b: x=david

%.b: x+=a

%.a.b: x+=a+b

david.a.b: x+=c

        @echo $(x)

3.80 gives "hello a david c"
cvs gives "hello a a+b david c"

Neither of those seem correct. What are the rules for mixing pattern specific variables and target specific variables?
