I have found out the cause of this, and have filled a bug upstream since it affects them. If they mark it as WONTFIX, then I'll carry the change locally since it definitely doesn't work as I would expect it to.

So I proposed two options upstream, but have found flaws in both of them. I've proposed a third solution (bigger patch, but better solution IMO), but we are going to wait until LpSolit and dkl get online so they can add their 2ยข worth before I start writing a patch.

It seems my third idea is the best one. I've written a patch for it and submitted it upstream. Will wait for them to approve it before putting it in our code base.
Comment 5 Simon Green 2012-07-05 19:33:13 EDT
Since this won't make the cut before 4.2.1-3 is released, I'm marking this as CLOSED/UPSTREAM. When (if) they include it in Bugzilla 4.2, we inherit the code that way.

Comment 6 Simon Green 2012-07-26 01:40:01 EDT
Upstream approved the patch, but rejected it for inclusion upstream. Therefore we will carry this change locally. Changed the estimate to one hour more to get the patch and make the recommended changes.
