disagree? is there something to disagree about? we use noweb. it has a
bug. we fix the bug and use the fixed version until the bug gets fixed
in the distributed version. the bug has been reported, the fix has been
coded and submitted. the fix was rejected because it modified the C code
(a language i speak) rather than using awk/sed/shell (languages i don't
speak). so it's a static situation and has been for 3 years. the standard
version fails, the patched version works. use the patched version.

if we get lucky your version of the fix will get accepted and we can
stop using our local patch.

have you sent a bug report and your fix to Norman?
is there a later version with your fix?
