    It fixes the symptom, yes. Greg complained it's papering over the
    problem and not a real fix, which is fair enough, but ...

    yes, it did seem to be a newly introduced problem in -mm1 or -mm2. To my
    mind, if we don't have a proper fix, we ought to drop the patch that
    caused the problem in the first place? Andy .. can you finger which
    patch that was, I forget ...
