[I can't get into trac to comment on the issue (hangs on login), so I'm
following up here.]

In case it's not clear, the changes for 1.6 and 1.7 are different, and
probably shouldn't be. The patch I took from 1.7 looked similar to
what's in mpich, but hard-wired rather than autoconfiscated, whereas the
patch for 1.6 on the tracker sets the entries to NULL instead.
