Hey Nagy,

Cleaning out the email inbox, so we'll start at the earliest emails I have.

Can you explain exactly what this patch does before I commit it? I
made the changes locally on my GIT tree and it seems to work without
problems (at least in pactest's eyes). However, I want to know WHY it
works, and why we should change it. In addition, this makes a good
commit message.
