I've been searching the archives but to no avail. Do you know where
this patch is? If it's for 0.19.1 then I should be able to just graft

just the release branch. Should be trivial grafting it in.
It REALLY annoying because it's happening for frequently and my
girlfriend is losing confidence in the mythbox.
