Rather than some of the proposed workarounds, I'd rather like to try and
fix this properly. I've put some quick analysis into the above bug and I
think it shouldn't be too difficult to fix. If anyone wants to test and
send a patch I'd be more than happy for that as I'm travelling at the
moment (doing this form the airport) but I'll try and take a look later
today if I get the change.
