Hey Holger,

Well, I went ahead and backported it anyways :P  It appears to work fine
for me. Do you want to give the attached patch a shot?  If it works for
you I can include it in 0.8.12.  If you don't have time to try it out,
no worries, we'll just wait for the 0.9.1 release for it to be in there.
