Hi Andreas,

im principle I like these patches, I just wonder if we can come up with a way 
that we can easily track when a bug for which we implemented a workaround, has 
been fixed. 

I slightly fear that you're adding a lot of workarounds to get better results 
(which is great) and then - _maybe_ - you go missing some day and noone tracks 
these bugs anymore..
