I do tend to commit patches against DRUPAL-4-6 given that they had  
enough eyeballs/testing.  The 4.6 patch of that issue has not yet  
been tested.  With some testing, we can fix it in Drupal 4.6.11.

As of Drupal 4.7, each release cycle will have a dedicated  
maintainer.  Gerhard maintains Drupal 4.7, Neil will maintain Drupal  
5.0, and I'm on the outlook for a Drupal 6.0 maintainer.
