While I'm happy to get some recognition let's not forget that I was also the one who, at some point in time, *added* the very bug that I fixed during the context %-) To my own defence I did create it during an attempt to /decrease/ the risk of similar bugs going unnoticed but this does not make me feel much better about it right now. Ah well, I guess the sum of bugs is a global constant. Unfortunately this is not even the whole story - 15c60e2 added injury to the insult. That bug was potentially so very, VERY bad I will not explain it here. But I'm pretty sure it did not affect the contest. Executive summary: Do NOT use the contest tarball (even the last version of it) for ANYTHING. You have been warned. :-/ magnum
