Sorry - The patch maybe isn't very clear. I'd assumed that the section 
marked "// this should be obsolete..." was obsolete, since it's been 
around for some time and I've seen no comments asking what this strange 
error in their backend output is.


If it's incorrect, I'll gladly redo the patch to remove the obsolete 
comment, if it's incorrect.
