Excellent - will do.

Hokay, as soon as I have any results (probably tomorrow now) I'll send an
update.  However if it is "something we fixed", does that mean it somehow
didn't get committed (or at least committed yet)?  This core-dumps on a
build from "4.2.0pre1-GIT-89200c2"; the current (as of right now) build is
"Version 4.2.0pre1-GIT-6bf9a77", so fixed between those two revisions?

Oh well - guess we'll see tomorrow :-)

Many thanks for the very quick and helpful response,
