thanks, I'll look into it.

The problem is that the patch was made last summer, and there isn't much  
time now, so I thought it would be a bit risky to complicate it even more.  
I'll try it.

ok. I didn't evolved to zexy 2, but wanted to. As said before, it is a  
time problem, and also that I am sending the patch to someone who can't  
work with it, so it has to really work with no problems. And now is a bit  
risky to start changing things around.
