Well, it seems you arrived not a second too late :)

I have to run now, but I'll look into this later if I can.

I think I'm simply going to revert the patches made for Alex's bug for
now, until I can redo that more carefully using your tests.

The filtering code is a *^&*@! minefield, and walking over it
blindfolded (ie without unit tests) led to the only result that could
have been expected...

Unfortunately I have a couple of crazy days ahead so it may not be
until Sunday that I can get back to Alex's bug and fix it properly.

In the meantime, many thanks for catching all of this!  I'll
incorporate your tests into the trunk as soon as I have a free minute.
