Pushed to blead in commit 69b89a0f0bb2cbb4c1607e78c3b414bf45244bea, with one committer's edit -- I had to remove a non-printing character in the patch:

Dom, since I doubt any of our smoke-testing rigs are set up to reproduce this problem, could you send us some sort of evidence that the problem has been fixed?

Thank you very much.
