Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2007-02-21 22:08:23 UTC
This should be caught a little bit better with the pending update, but given the
specifics on reproducing this case, now I can hopefully get a better fix in.

Thanks for the good bug report!

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-09 20:51:23 UTC
Should be handled better with pirut 1.3.5
