I have to agree. Especially as the "big patch" just removes the
fragile code that caused the problem in the first place. So in this
case I do suspect that the bigger patch ends up being the safer one.

But I obviously don't actually see the problem, so it would be good to
get confirmation that Christoph's patch actually fixes things first.
Ingo, does the one in this thread apply for you?
