Which means you may have just deferred the problem to another point rather than actually fixing anything.  The other fear is that a band aid like this can result in a situation where the root cause is never properly investigated because folks are "satisfied" with the work around.

Sure, if thats your feeling we can wait to find out what the root cause 
is; it's certainly worth getting this fixed.

The only thing is we're aiming to release oi_151 next Wednesday on OI's 
first anniversary so it would be good to get it fixed up before then, 
with the work-around if necessary as it'd be silly to ship to broken.
