 Yes, I can confirm the fix seems to cure the memory overrun issue.
 PS. We are using the port
 -3.1.tar.gz and we saw several issues with it, like the history subsystem n=
 ot configurable and our custom ^@ binding regularly overwritten. The port i=
 s some weeks old, maybe some problems are fixed already, maybe some are spe=
 cific to the port and maybe some are the artefacts of our potentially inade=
 quate attempts to enforce the library to behave as needed for us. In short,=
  would it make it sense for me to try to report some of those issues and if=
  so, in what form?
