I am sorry for the delay in replying to your email. I was hoping that an Alpha
expert would answer your question, but since no-one has stepped up, I have had
a look at the code.
I have to say that I agree with your analysis. There is indeed a bug, and the
correction you propose is the right way to solve the problem. So I have checked
the patch in, along with the changelog entry below.
Thank you very much for reporting this problem and providing the solution.
