Right, mouse-based copy and paste is one of the typical ways
how people mangle patches without even noticing it.

No real problem caused in this case.  Let's be happy happy
you gained this experience with a small patch rather than
with a large one.  :-)

Of course, every workflow needs getting used to, but in absolute
terms, i think that mailing list worflows are significantly
simpler and *much* less error prone than web-based workflows.

Even though i avoid web-based workflows whereever possible, the
number of instances where i had to write text twice because
information had to be put into some web form which then crashed
in the middle of assembling the information are too numerous
to count.

You are welcome, thank you very much for reporting problems
and even more for sending in a very good patch.

Yours,
  Ingo
