It looks like these changes should be applicable to 2.5 as well.
I'd like to avoid gratuitous differences with 2.5, so can you
get David to apply them there first?  (I'm not implying that your
fixes are gratuitous, just that since David is "Mr. Unwind", he
may make minor changes when applying your patch, and I
might as well get those at the same time. :-)
