I've forwarded your patch to the upstream author and it has been
reviewed and applied to the stable branch (0.6) and also trunk (upcoming
0.7). It didn't make it into the 0.6.6 release though, which was
released just a few days ago.
I'll upload 0.6.6-1 to unstable with your patch applied the next days.
Just wanted to give you an update of the current status.
Thanks again for the patch,
