[Moving this to the list to avoid the overhead of an issue tracker
conversation.]

Eric, can you be more specific? I certainly don't mean to slight
anyone when responding to issues, and believe me, I'm not biased
against you -- if anything, the other way around :-), witness the
number of your patches that have been applied and issues addressed
(often by me).

But issues #964 and #767 are not the same thing. #964 is about a
specific bug, for which several solutions are available (in fact, the
last one proposed by Mike is the one I'd always assumed we'd be
using). Nothing in #964 contradicts my comments in #767, which still
apply as far as I can tell (not to mention the extra work of adding
tmpdir support to APR, which is what we'd have to do; "/tmp" is a
Unixism).

More generally, the fact that someone encountered a bug tangentially
related to an issue you'd earlier filed (and I'd closed as invalid)
doesn't mean that the closed issue is suddenly on fire :-). And my
disagreeing with an issue you filed in the past doesn't make me any
more likely to ignore other issues you file in the future.

If you disagree with my assessment of #767 on technical grounds, let's
talk about it. I make plenty of mistakes, and there could easily be
something I'm missing here. But comments like "Are you going to pay
more attention to me in the future?" don't add any information, and
don't help to point out what I might have missed :-).

Thanks,
-Karl
