Hrmm, the patch is right, and the only upstream patches that touch
parse.y (the file where the original fix was implemented) are the 011
and 012 patches which have been incorporated since our -5 and -6 patches
respectively. No one has reported a problem. I cannot personally attest
to the latest -8 patch, so it boils down to this being an upstream error
with one of their patches (015, 016, or 017), user error, or a new bug.
