I'm not sure we're confident enough about that patch (that it solves
the problem) to put it in mainline Subversion. It would suck to have
something so ugly in the code and yet *still* have the problem --
whereas no one minds so much if it's just an experimental workaround.

Wish we had a better sense of how often users run into the problem...
