Ah, crap. I remember looking at that, but deferred. Forgot to come back to
it and get it fixed :-)

Thank you. I really do think this is the proper semantic change for our
APIs. If there was going to be an underlying problem in the POSIX calls,
then I'd definitely agree with you and put them back (or possibly keep the
const to help callers, but copy the data within the routine).

In any case, I'm working on the problem above. Thanks for pointing it out.
