Oops. There were actually several other bugs lurking in that module,
and I fixed the CVS problem in a nicer way. So don't feel bad that I
rejected your patch. ;-) See the checkin message for details. Thanks
for prodding me into finding those other, long-hidden bugs!

Also fixed in a different (shorter and more general) way. Thanks for
spotting the bug!
