Yes, I sort of wondered what was going on. We get these reminders about 
bug reports filed against FreeBSD/Alpha sent to us at freebsd-alpha@ 
once a month and when someone actually DOES something about it, the bug 
is closed before the patch can tested and committed?

Please don't do that.

I for one appreciate the work and effort, John.
