Yep, it does. Thanks.

Hmmm... you're right. Never noticed that before. Sorry for blaming 
your release.

So it was a bug in ZPatterns, which resulted in useful behavior, but 
was then "fixed" by your release, so now the bug has to be put back 
in to return the erroneous but useful behavior :-)

Done. Maybe it's not such a huge problem but I think it's reasonable 
to expect /manage to do the same thing no matter what type of object 
you're accessing.
