Usualy I would be minded to agree, but this problem seems to be affecting
versions between rc8 and rc17

Adrian Hall reported problem with rc17
J.M. Maurer with rc15
Me with the current Fedora 5 RPM beta 8

In this case I suspect it may be easier to work backwards until the
problem goes away then see what was changed to cause the problem than try
and debug an intermittent problem in the current code.
