Hey Richard,

sorry i didn’t see your patch. as i wrote in the beginning, this is one of my 
first patches i committed and i might have done something wrong. In this case i 
haven’t had a look at the bug list first. sorry for that.

i don’t want to say your patch is not working, since i didn’t try it yet, but 
i’ll give it a try tomorrow and tell you if it fixed the problem. right now it 
looks like a nice solution to me. and it does fix the problem at it’s root 
source! but as is said, i’ll give it a try tomorrow and write back again.

kind regards
