Your description of the problem and solution certainly sounds reasonable.

Any chance you can create a patch and upload it to sourceforge so it doesn't
get lost?  Its much easier to review your changes that way.  Ideally, there
would be a separate patch for each individual problem (I'm afraid I can't
recall the other changes you refer to)

Welcome to open-source development <wink>
