No worries, I'm in no hurry I just wanted to make sure it didn't get lost in
the post-SC noise.

I didn't have the toolchain for an autogen so I took the 20034 patch and
applied it to 1.3b2. With the patch 1.3b2 works and without it it fails (ran
the exact same commands and only "patch ; make ; make install" in between).

So, thanks Jeff and George the bug appears gone as of r20034. Don't forget to
push that to relevant branches.
