Actually, apparently that bug was patched earlier then we found it ... the 
thing mj2 is lacking is a proper commit mailing list, so I wasn't aware of

Again, that was more a communications issue with the mj2 devs then an 
oversight on their part ... as Alvaro can attest, when I posted to the mj2

"already fixed in CVS" ...
