Do you have the source for your version (I presume you
mean v0.5) ?

This is the patch I have applied to v0.6, among lots of
others, which I think will fix it for you, assuming the
code is comparable between versions...

There are a lot of other hacks in the version I'm running;
either I'll post them as-is against the 2005 source code,
or I'll try to create diffs where applicable against the
lastest source, or I won't bother -- depends how lazy I
am -- maybe I'll just post a description of hacks I've
added in case there's interest...
