I've already created the branch from the 1.1.3 tag and merged the
bugfixes. It took some time, but there were surprisingly very few conflicts.

I'll check which *.po file changes have to be merged back later.

Yes, I've been very busy ;)

I don't think it will have more bug reports than HEAD. After all, I'm
only merging bugfixes.

It's not just the cache! Remember: we got rid of Win98/Me support
shortly after the 1.1.3 release. So HEAD won't even compile for those
systems anymore. And I think we at least owe those poor people (poor
because they still have to use such a crappy OS) another bugfix release.
