Great! Thanks for the quick fixes. I've begun reviewing & committing
your patches. Since these patches are significant, I'll mentioned your
name as "Ronald" (no mail address included) as a contributor in the
source files involved, I hope this is agreeable. If you don't want to be
mentioned for some reason let me know.

I will mail you here once I complete reviewing, committing and testing
these patches.

Thanks & Regards,
