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?
