Assorted fixes, updates & Merges.
Note, a few people sent me patches to 'merge pre8/pre9'.
Whilst I appreciate the effort, I'd rather do this myself, to get
a better idea of what I'm merging/need to drop. Thanks all the same.
(I've put out this 'resync' patch, just to stop people sending me
these, when I'd already done it 8-)
