This is not what I meant. When you put together the whole patch just do
what ever you have to do to make sure none of the functions emit
warnings. My point wast that there is no need to use 'eval' to suppress
warnings.

I'm getting a bit lost with all these small patches in each email. Can
you put together a patch with all the changes to date that you are
making including the suggestions by Alexanda so we can all see where we
are up to?

FYI, it should apply cleanly on top of the 'leaks' branch of my tree.

thanks,
Tobin
