Ok, I've applied this to SVN trunk.

Thank you David, for digging the archives!
Thank you Jon Watte, for finding the bug (I hope your frustration with the 
former patch rejection will pass)
Thank you Jason, for keeping track of all the issues.

Having said this... Jon Watte seems to be one of the experts here on this
list (just look at his carworld), and it would benefit ODE if he would be 
willing to accept svn write access.

Jon, if you want, mail me your sf id. Don't be afraid that we will put
you to some maintenance duty or anything, you could just use it to fix
cases, where you are sure that they should be fixed.
