The patch attachment did not make it through the (antispam /
antivirus /... ) filters:
Such attachments should have MIME type text/plain.

I have created a bugzilla account for you(r e-mail) and you
should've gotten an auto-email with info.

Thank you in advance for helping with this.

In this special case, we'd also be happy for other users testing the
problem and the fix, as access to SAS may have become difficult
for most R core members.
