True, copy'n'paste is evil! Thanks for the patch, it will be in 1.66.

You may of course ask everything here. With a growing subscriber count
chances are, that you get a satisfying response. However, if you have
really tricky things you might want to cross-post to the original pf
mailing list at pf at benzedrine.cx where the true wisdom is.

Please try here first!
