any patches are welcome!!

If you work with a SVN checkout, then create the patch via svn like

$ svn diff > /tmp/mybugfix.patch

and send us the .patch file to this list.

If you have a tar-ball source, you need the original file and do like

$ svn diff file.c.orig file.c > /tmp/mybugfix.patch

Last resort is to send the modified file. It would help
us a lot if you indicate the version it was based on so
we have it easier to create a patch on our own.
