Hi Philip,

Both of our patches solve the original problem, but like you, I'm not
entirely sure which is better and judging if there are no unintended
side-effects from either...well that's another question entirely.

For now I'm going to continue testing my 1.3 ebcdic port (which is how I
originally came across the same problem you did) with my patch in place
and see if anything else falls out. In the meantime, if someone out there
knows this section of code and can spare some time to take a look at
either patch, please do.
