Thanks, applied as change 34542. A very timely patch. How did you know what
I was thinking about last night? :-)
(My understanding is that the hints file doesn't need to be changed for 6.x
The problem is that we're relying on something deprecated, that was removed
from the base install on 7.x, but is present with the compatibility libs.
Whilst this machine is 7.0, it's not mine, and it has the compatibility libs
installed, so I couldn't test what was needed to make it work on a clean 7.0
