Thanks for the patches.

I merged the second into the tree before release.

Unfortunately, without some more background explanation regarding the
reason why the patch is necessary, what it fixes, and the rationale
thereof (and a ChangeLog entry or similar) I couldn't evaluate the purpose
or potential side-effects of the first patch.  If you could provide those,
I'll certainly make the time to evaluate, and maybe apply if all is well...
