I have committed this fix in "CVS head" and the 3.9 branch.

It is best to report bugs via the Bugzilla so that they don't get lost.
Reporting them via the list risks having them fall through the cracks, or
using several developers time pursuing them since we don't know the others
are working on it.  (well - more likely just that no one acts on it!)
