Sorry about that, but that's just temporary bad luck. It happens quite often
that each person who sees a patch has no special interest or particular
comments, and so they hope someone else will deal with it. It's good to ask
again, and if there's still no response then it's fine to file it, but it will
generally take "the team" (i.e. you and me and everyone else) a lot longer to
get around to dealing with a filed patch.

Personally if I see an unanswered question or patch that I might be able to
handle but which I'd rather someone else handled, I mark it in my mail box and
then every now and then see if any marked messages still have no reply. At
that point I may respond, maybe many days later.

Hmm... the "last time" you sent it appears to be only a day and a half before
you wrote the above. I have that message marked, but it's the weekend and I've
been away. Sorry, but although ideally you'll get a response within 24 hours
you may often need to wait a bit longer.

S.Ramaswamy's last patch for this, that Peter Lundblad mentioned, was posted
here not on June 29 but in September:
<http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-09/0281.shtml> I queried part of that
patch and have been unable to understand his explanations.

The e-mail list is definitely preferred in general. Thanks.

Aww! No, not in spirit. I'm sure many of us are grateful that you're working
on this. Just the other day I came across this problem and wished we'd got it
sorted by now, so I'll try to have a look at your patch if it seems like not
enough other people are doing so.
