Things look pretty good now. Afaict everything has been tested, problems have 
been identified and patches have been found.

My plan would be to have my updates included in the next SBo update (pending 
approval). I would therefore like to ask the respective maintainers of the 
scripts in need of patches to submit their updates as well.

Alternatively we can prepare a branch with the patches provided by John Vogel 
and David Spencer. That is fine with me as well, but I would prefer updates 
coming directly from the maintainers.
