Oops, must have missed it.
Thanks for the quick response :-)

BTW, there was some discussion not too long ago about releasing 2.6.1 as
a performance release (and including such fixes as this one, I presume).
I haven't seen much discussion about that recently... Is more testing
needed on that? If so, I could make a Debian package of the current CVS
to go into the Debian "experimental" distribution.
