Thanks for those patches -- I've now applied them (more or less)
and they should be in the next RC (which I might do this evening,
unless anybody suddenly leaps up with new stuff to put in it).

not platform-based. (Or, as with the realloc issue you mention, the code
should just be written for the lowest common denominator).
