*Eek*. I've already done that, I needed to do it for a client of ours.
And let me tell you, hacking a 1.2.8 patch into 2.0.0 wasn't much fun :)

The patch as stands has been running in my home machine now for about two
weeks without any problems, and accounts perfectly (I think).

If you'd like a copy of the patch (or you'd like to yell at me for hacking
and not sharing :), just drop me an email at (please
don't use the address for Linux stuff).
