Nothing in particular, I was planning on sending a new version after
-rc1 is out and then queue it for 4.21 (5.1?) (this patch came in a bit
late, and I had already stopped taking patches for 4.20).

If you consider this a fix or want to have it in 4.20 for other reasons,
just let me know and I'll queue it to the -fixes branch.

Regards,

Boris
