Yes, the post leads to revision 677245 [1], where the fix (by Thomas)
was committed.

Right, that commit was made after the 1.7 release.

Right again. It's in the current trunk code and (unfortunately) there
was no 1.7.1 release. Currently things are moving on and I hope there
will be a 1.8 release (see bug 50045 [2]) in a not-so-far future. ;-)

IMHO using the SVN checkout and/or a nightly build [3] is already
better than the 1.7 release as there were a few notable bugs (such as
this one) fixed since the release. But of course that not being
released yet means exactly that. So it is possible to use in
production *but* you are the one which should evaluate and assume the

Nevertheless, if you are not willing to take the risk, you may simply
download/checkout the 1.7 release code and simply patch your working
copy (taking a look at the modification made by Thomas [1], it should
be quite similar if not exactly the same). ;-)
