I only tested to see if the patch applies to a clean 3.1.5. I am sure,
however, that your patch will be useful to someone;) Go ahead an post it
to the list, or just upload it to:

        ftp://ftp.ccsf.org/incoming/

P.S. It would be nice to document your patch; save potential users the
      guesswork and digging up relevant information in the list archives;)

Joe
