I'm pretty busy right now and can't guarantee I'll even be able to look
at this until Friday (I spent the last 2 days on pg stuff so need to do

I don't know - which leads me nicely onto point out that it's not my
patch :-) I think it was Andrew that orginally wrote it - I just created
the patch to put it back in after it was removed.
