This would save a bit (or a bunch, who knows? ;-) of time to integrate a patch. 
BTW, the server in question is very next to 7.2-R. Kernel with KDB, serial 
console are in place.

All data are actually backed up around, but the server is in operational state 
(tthough not vital to other company needs), so I would just hope not to 
regenerate all from scratch if at all possible.

Thank you again!
