Me neither, but before adding code or fixing problems, PLEASE add a test
case that fails first, then make it work.  That way we can avoid
regressions.  Bruno squashed a bug (yea!), but I didn't see a test case
to show how it was failing.  It would be really beneficial so that we
can ensure the problem does not crop up again after refactoring source
resolving in the future.
