Yes, please post the patch to trunk to the dev list and I'll try to pick
it up and run with it. I've been EXTREMELY busy the last couple of months
and when I have had time to work on it, I have not been able to cleanly
apply the pathches I've received from various people. However, sorry for
dropping the ball, personal health and busy schedule have slowed me way
down on it.

I'm hoping to get a new 64-bit server within the month and then I'll be
trying this stuff out on my own system(s).
