weighing in a second time on the same thread: it's not a regression nor
a new bug and so would normally not warrant a post-RC fix. but it's been
busted for a long time and it *is* a portability problem not a logic
problem. so i'm edged over to the "yes we should fix it in 1.5" answer.

to repeat: if you can write a couple of tests, and if this mailing list
reviews the patch, i'm +1 to it.
