One problem with the patch is that the link refers to the contactor
archive, and the patch there is mangled. To apply the patch it would
be necessary to track down a raw patch (from tigris, marc or gmane
say), or to fix the patch by hand.

In addition there is no regression test which means that whoever
applies the patch is going to have to work out how to manually test it
at the very least. Assuming it does work, without a regression test
there is no guarantee that it will continue to work in the future.

You say you are looking for a bite-sized issue to fix, well there is
still work to be done on this one :)
