Well personally I'd rather you tested the current code in SVN to
see if we've fixed it for you yet :-). I think that'd be more
helpful :-).

Seriously, I've put some fixes into SVN for this, and when Jerry
does the next pre-release if you can't get anonymous SVN access
then you should be able to test the code. Please let me know
if it is fixed for you (it works for me now).
