The ISC folks seem to agree, as they've changed their code base to do
so. There are huge structural differences in the internals, though, so
it's not just a matter of porting a fix.

I think my earlier message had enough detail to put out a Problem Report
for the issue. If you prefer, I could come up with a patch for the
actual fix, but if I did that, I would spend enough time to check *all*
of the options to see which other ones might be missing, so I wouldn't
come up with a PR immediately.
