Apart from that, I'm not really confident to push this patch for 2.9.0
on such short notice.  We should leave some time for testing before
releasing it.

The problem is that I'm unavailable for about 4 weeks after the 2.9.0
release.  Having said that, we can certainly apply the patch, but
only release it with 2.9.1 or 2.10.0, whatever we call the next one.


Thanks,
