Oh. I compared it to our old bleeding code and somehow deemed them
virtually the same. I do not really understand the problem though: What
happens (or not), and when?

Note that I am not putting any more work to the very soon released
contest tarball (in case a fix is needed), although nothing stops anyone
else from unpacking it, patch it and create a new one.

BTW: somehow you or your MUA keep putting me as cc on list mail (this
one for instance). For some odd reason this make my MUA want to address
replies to you only, and I risk to miss that.
