This is a much larger topic. Unfortunately I don't have the
time *right now* to work on the issue. At some point I will
certainly come back to these patches and more thoroughly
test them before submitting immature patches for review.

Sorry for making you spend time on my broken code.

Review is not magic, everybody will miss things from time to
time. It happens to me, it happens to metze, it happens to
everybody. I would not feel bad about this.

The patches from my point of view were right, they did
survive autobuild, but they cause a major problem for
people. So I need to put more effort into them that *right
now* I can spend. The correct way I believe is to remove the
problem as quickly as possible to restore an operational DC
for our users again.

With best regards,
