Thanks for finding them.

1.6.5 is currently scheduled for next week. But if the bug is serious
enough, and the fix takes longer to code and review than the next 8
days, we can consider pushing 1.6.5 out another week or so.

As for 1.5.8, I've been making noises about cutting a (final?) 1.5.x
release for a some time, since we do have a number of pending bugfixes
either nominated or already merged. This seems like a push over the
top of that hill.
