But nobody has said anything about any such patch in a very long time.

In general, if nobody has brought up a subject in two weeks or so, you can
count on it having been forgotten and you should bring it back up. Especially
when I've asked for it. I also tend to ask for such issues roughly 14 days
before every release, which since 7.19.5 thus have been done at least six

The 7.21.1 release contains 37 bug fixes and 4 changes done during 56 days, it
should at least hint that there's always a fairly high degree of bugfixing
going on, and we really need help of all submitters to make sure that A) the
bugs really get fixed when we think we have done it and B) that we don't miss
important patches and bugs in the flood of information.

As far as I remember, we've never had a non-contriversial and complete patch
for that problem. Can you provide the patch again please?

I have however written my own fix for the known bug #62 as I mentioned in my
post and patch series I posted here the other day:

... and I didn't see any comments from anyone on that (yet).
