sorry, i sent the last reply just to tom.  the much larger patch 
referred to here should be applied *instead* of the earlier tinier 
patch, since i thought we had established that i should send larger, 
self-contained patches, and that we'd ignore all of my earlier 

the obvious solution is to unapply that earlier, tiny patch -- then 
this one should go in smoothly.
