I have committed this patch.

I'm confused.  I thought we had committed this.  At least, the code appears to
have had the patches applied to it:

  #if defined(ENOENT) && defined(ENOTDIR)
        else if (errno == ENOENT || errno == ENOTDIR) {
  #error ENOENT || ENOTDIR not defined -- check the comment below this line in the source
for details

Is this still a problem?

This looks non-bogus to me, a simple change which could explain some mysterious
deaths we've had recently when doing a kill -HUP nightly to rotate the logs. 
I'll send a separate patch message for your voting pleasure.

I will attempt to go through some of them as well, but I really think 1.2b5 is
needed out there very badly, and the other fixes can wait.
