Thank you, now I understand.
I really completely misinterpreted your "very long standing"
Hence I do apologize for the negative connotation of the
above... and thank you again -- in the name of all involved --
for reporting the bug here!
BTW: I've committed svn rev 68519
about ten minutes ago which does fix the bug (simply applying your good advice)
and contains a regression test.
Thank you once more, Radford!
