Oh I see. It's possible that my massive conversion to use the comm
accessor got blind at some point and left over a few things. I
remember that I only lightly tested that new comm infrastructure. I
mean I tested a lot of "perf report -s foo,bar" combinations for
performance comparisons but I haven't tested the perf script and all
the other perf tools.

I'll rebase these patches and test that wider before resending.
