And I would rather close this rather large hole right now and not wait
for two more days when we are looking at doing what might be the final

I had already applied before you said anything, so the point is moot.

Otherwise this thread is now in my QUEUE-4.5 folder so I'll get a
reminder shortly after the release when I go through that.
