Just to close the loop on this, both the minimal fix and the long-term
fix are checked in.  We don't currently have a scheduled date for 1.7.1;
the schedule for 1.8 is March 2010 plus or minus three months.

I failed to credit Marcus Watts in my commit of the long-term fix, which
was adapted from his patch.  Apologies on that count.
