I guess from my point of view, my concern is that I would like to see this
patch applied to 1.3.x so that it can be picked up in the next release
candidate and we can have a better 1.3.x release of Subclipse.

I am not a C programmer but it doesn't seem to me that Patrick's change
have introduced any new problems. The problems that you are concerned
about would exist in the existing code as well. (wouldn't they?) So
while I think it is good that you have potentially identified a problem
scenario and are looking for an approach that will fix it, I would still
like to see Patrick's patch applied to the branch.

That being said, it was dlr that vetoed the patch so it could be that I am
making an incorrect assumption in linking it to your email. I am still
waiting to hear what dlr's reason was for the veto.
