Patch looks great, this seems to be exactly the right spot.

Two minor comments:

We'd love to see this as git format-patch patch.

To make sure this never breaks again, is it possible to
create a torture test? If not, can you send us a small
wireshark trace, so that we can create one?

The same applies to your OPEN_BY_FILE_ID patch.
