Description Jerome Marchand 2007-03-30 05:34:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The declaration and one assignment of the unused oldsize variable remain. This
variable is unused due to the application of 4g4g patch.
The bug is harmless, but wastes a bit memory.

A very simple patch which removes the unused variable is joined.
