Definitely - I will definitely take a crack at fixing it - though I
cannot do it this week. Monday I will set aside some to try to tweak
it so the fix for radio buttons will still work without actually
resubmitting every workflow parameter - if I cannot fix it I will
revert the commit.



I am with Peter on this Saket - I wouldn't feel bad - this is a really
subtle bug. I do know that feeling of being worried the bugs I have
added to Galaxy greatly out number the features though. I know that
you have not actually done this - but I have added so many more bugs
than you that I am less sure about myself.
