    Roland,

    What should these patches apply against?

    I have tried rc4 and a number of them fail, and I have also
    tried one of your gits (though maybe not the right one), and
    at least some of the the same patches seem to fail to apply
    there.

    If I can get an idea what they should apply to I will apply them
    against that and see how things look.

    I have at least one of the nasty bugs that I know about.

    Roger
