I hope you were able to make sense of the patch I sent! It wasn't a
clean, straighforward one, so if you successfully applied the whole
thing by hand, I'm impressed. As for your Solaris patch program, maybe
it's an older version that doesn't handle the newer format "unified"
diff listings, which is what I sent. You may want to upgrade to a more
recent version.
