I just got back from a gig -- thanks for the quick fix Dan. Here's a
slightly better one that also fixes a few other ugly bits.
This is serious enough to warrant a quick beta4, but I want to spend a
couple of hours looking into Ricardo's problem (which I still can't
reproduce). Better that then having to do a beta5 over the weekend ;}
I'm just too beat tonight.
