    Exactly--only the unsupported old versions will do this (pretty sure it 
    was fixed before 0.19)...  If you still feel you can't upgrade to the 
    current version, feel free to backport the patches you need to make it work.

I may, though really I'm just waiting until the reward/pain ratio gets
high enough; this is one more item for the numerator. :)
