Ok, I'm going to commit the two patches, because even if there is some
other bug hiding too (and it doesn't fix your thing - although I think it
will), this is definitely a real fix regardless.

And I want to do a -rc9 and let it get a couple of days of testing, since
I got way more pull requests than I hoped for while I was off diving.
