Hi Johan,

I submitted the issue a while back. I don't know how relavent this "patch"
is with the current code, but you might try the changes I mentioned in the
thread linked from the report?

It might be good to get some feedback on if it works for others as well.
(I do worry that the code base might have changed some so feel free to
ask if you need help applying it.) Unfortunately I can't guarantee that
it will work, I can only say that it did for me at that time and didn't seem
to harm anything else in _very_ limited testing.

The issue just annoyed me enough and I figured that it was a good chance
to learn a bit of the internals of bbv2. Since then though I haven't really
looked at bbv2 at all.

The change was small enough though so hopefully one of the gurus can look at
it and figure out what needs to be changed to close the issue. Maybe we
should at least consider upping the priority?
