That doesn't fit in the numbering scheme, it would have to be 2.3.2. Given the amount of traffic about this I'm tempted to agree that we need to move quickly and issue a fix for this issue (only).
We really should fix the HP/UX build problem as well.
That sounds dangerous to me: there's *always* an HP/UX build problem, if you count (as I do) getting threads to work. Every release, some HP/UX user submits a patch that breaks the build for other HP/UX users. So unless we've got a bona fide HP/UX expert on tap now (do we? that would be way cool <wink>), don't hold up solving a clear and widespread Linux problem by waiting for one to appear.
