I apologize.  The way I read it, increasing the buffer size was going 
to fix the paste problem, and case closed.  I clearly was reacting

My understanding of the process was that changes would be committed
to CVS then tested by the development community.  I think there's
ample evidence that the patch doesn't cause immediate failure that
would preclude developers from testing it.  If you really want
more testing, checking it into CVS is the way to do it.

True, so how can I make the code easier for you to support?
I can introduce fixes in small chunks, that eventually 
add up to what we have now.  Would that be better?
