it has been running for 3 days, and hit hard for stress test, it seems 
fine now with this patch. I guess it would be good for debian to 
backport that indeed (and I'm surprised nobody was impacted by this in a 
noticeable enough way so as to report it).

As I'm now facing a required recompile/upgrade anyway, I'm wondering 
whether I should just patch this, or go for the trunk code.. How 
reliable is it?

Cheers, and thanks a lot to you guys
