That was fixed by a patch sent by Armin Wolfermann.

Well, code is like porcelain; If you break it you get to keep the pieces.

I think you'd have better success both with testing and with submitting
patches if you reset your branch so it matches what's in master exactly
and then do small, isolated changes that fix one specific breakage at a
time without going off on a tangent and testing code that noone else has.

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
on peace.
