Hi Richard,
Thanks for pointing me to the bug report.  Seeing that you put it in there
in 2005, it's pretty clear it won;t get fixed at this point so I'll have to
program around it.

I noticed the response to your bug report included the time honored excuse
that fixing it would cause backwards compatibility problems.  I really have
a hard time with that.  If something is working incorrectly, it should be
fixed and clearly documented in the release notes so we can change things
as necessary.
