I don't know what I did before, but it does apply for me now.  The issue 
here is whether we should add it to Chapter 6 right now.  According the 
the copyright notices, it hasn't changed since 1999.

If the code has really been unchanged that long, it's hard to believe 
that an error has persisted since then.

Studying the change, the fix seems to be fairly subtle.  It seems to be 
addressing http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=13013
