I'm glad to report that your fix checks here as well (on the itanium2 box):

Ran 134 tests in 0.285s

The tests were run 50 times.

I've attached a slightly fancier version of the test script, in case you want 
to keep it around and occasionally run it.  You can set the verbosity at the 
command line if something out of the ordinary happens.

Thanks for tracking this down so fast!
