These bug fixes do not apply without patches 2,3, and 4. So I'll
wait to apply these until after the comments are resolved or
you send me these fixes so that they apply.

There were no major comments to 2,3 and 4 so it shouldn't take
to long to get these applied. I haven't actually tested them yet
though.

Thanks,
John.
