Dear diary, on Thu, Jul 21, 2005 at 01:49:04AM CEST, I got a letter
where Wolfgang Denk <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> told me that...

They certainly aren't.

And did the changes apply? :-)

The message is surely confusing, but appeared to be rather corner-casy
and after I imagined the required complexity of filtering this, I
decided to spend my time on something more useful for the time being. :)
