Just a quick note since it's been just over a month now since I said I'd fix 
this.
I've been done with the actual fix for about three weeks, but this feature is
rather troublesome to write a sanity.sh test for.  I've been alternately looking
into using Automake's testing features to write a test external to sanity.sh and
getting into/trying to follow some of the current Automake and Autoconf issues
because I wasn't sure things were working quite right.  :)  I can check in the 
fix
without tests if anybody wants it now.  Otherwise it'll probably still be 
another
two weeks.
