Ok, so it's been 19 days since your mail. And much longer since june 10,
when you fixed it in RELENG_7 and RELENG_8. Do you feel OK with the
patch by now? My experience with the patch on production systems is
entirely positive.

Would be great to have this fix in 7.3. Only 7.3 has this bug. I can
send the reports of my problems to re@ if you are OK with putting this
into the release.
