Hi all,

I'm not sure whether this needs to go here or to dev@, so I'll try here first.

At this point in time, upgrading isn't an option, but if the trivial change to the 0.1-beta2
code isn't going to fix things, then I can try to schedule some downtime for our production

Thanks for any help and advice you can provide,
