Maybe I should explain how the bug fixing process works.  When we fix
a bug in CVS, we close the bug report, because there's no reason for
us to be reminded of the bug.  Of course, that doesn't magically
update everybody's copy of the buggy module, but once it's fixed in
CVS, it will automatically be part of the next release.

For those who can't wait until the next release, the fixed module can
be retrieved using CVS.  If you don't have CVS, you can browse the CVS
tree on-line at SourceForge:

It's fixed in the 2.1.1c1 release that I announced today.
