Hi Hervé.

Thanks for the bug report.  The code related to this problem was being
worked on quite a bit recently, so I don't doubt there may be a
regression.  I may be a bit slow to look at this since I'm in the middle
of working on something else at the moment, hence I'm CC-ing the list so
other people can see that the problem exists.
