Hello Nico,

I've also unsuccessfully sent patches for this issue to David Summers
(whom I'm also copying in) but I didn't realize the .spec sources were
in the "official" repository. You may have better luck submitting a new
patch directly to this list with [PATCH] in the subject (making sure it
still applies cleanly to the latest trunk), although I don't know if
anyone else would be willing to apply the patches.

If no one is still willing to apply your patch then I will offer to host
the corrected SRPMs and RHEL-4 64 bit binaries myself, but of course
getting this bug fixed in the trunk would be preferable.
