  The in the last binary distribution doesn't include the '040 fixes.

  It looks like the same patches I posted should still work.  The
location I stuck the extra code into isn't used, and the locations I
patched in the code haven't changed.

  I just looked at the source for binpatch again, and if you use the -r
option with a symbolic location (-s _symbol), it won't do the
replacement.  If patching by addresses (-a address), the -r option works
