Oops, sorry, long week.  Working on it right now.

I have found the patch that fixes the problem on 3.3, and I am running

The patch adds a whole bunch of PPC specific code which I will leave
out of the backport since they are just optimizations, and I don't want
to make such changes this late in the game.

Mark, can I assume the follwing patch is OK to backport to 3.3?

Also, I will be changing the date on the patch below, since it was
really committed on the 1st of April.
