I think I now remember reporting this problem for the 1.29.0 release
and you even requested me to check something to work around this
problem back in December and I forgot all about it. :-( Seems I need a
memory upgrade for my brain.

You are right, it's a conformance problem with VA6, at least on my
installation. But the fix on the 1.29.0 branch should work. Could you
please merge it to the main trunk?
