Heh, of course I should have tried applying on top of today's
codebase before sending it out! :(

Having just done so, it quickly showed that this patch assumes
that the 'left' parameter to use_pack() has been changed from
an 'unsigned long *' to an 'size_t *' as part of the series
that was being discussed in the above link.

Ah, well, sorry for the noise!
