This one was fixed in the trunk:
        Date: 2013-10-03 20:26:49 EDT (Thu, 03 Oct 2013)

Bugs that haven't been fixed in trunk probably won't make it into the 1.55 release.
They'll need to be fixed on trunk, then we'll need time for all the testers to cycle to make sure that it didn't break anything.
