Just to make sure I understand it properly, do you want to say that I
added 2479bb6 patch after you reported this problem & your patch?

If yes, then I don't see how my patch came after yours. Mine was
written on 4/Dec/2014 and committed on 8/Dec/2014 and you first
reported the problem on 14/Dec/2014.

I can accept that :)

I don't think I removed that stuff after your patch.

Okay, leave it on me. I will re-circulate your patch.
