I remember testing for these situations when I originally made the patch.
Nothing horrendous (ie crash or hang) happens, but I don't really remember
exactly what happens (eg warning message, no message, ...).

Anyway, the new patches will have to be retested and I can say right now that I
won't have the bandwidth to do so (and I haven't figured out exactly how to add
to the regression test suite).  So, ANY VOLUNTEERS?
