Unamaze yourself.  There are more issues than just fixing bugs.

A very cursory inspection shows that this patch is quite probably
broken.  It may happen that this patch only hides the problem, not
fixes it.

In such a case all this patch will do is making it harder to fix the
problem later.

Hope this helps,
