The patch looks good to me, I'm about to run a few tests with it and intend to 
commit it to trunk later today.

Once this is done, I'm ready to take a look at your other patches, so please 
do send them once they are ready. Thank you!

I just compiled it on a 32-bit system, looks good so far, no more warning 
regarding this. I think we can live with that.
