I just wanted to let you guys know that others were experiencing the problem too and express my support for Bob's idea of a quick 3.8.1 release to fix the problem.

I still agree (with myself) that this is a serious bug and warranted an immediate new release.

Same here. For what it's worth, the Debian 3.8.0 packages contain the patch to make 3.8.0 compatible with 3.7.4 and presumably 3.8.1 as well.
