That's good news!  I'll remove the pertinent item from bugs.texi,
and add a note to news.texi.  Sorry I never got around to rigorously
debugging this -- not having an HPPA machine handy posed a problem --
but it *was* still on my list of things to deal with, and getting
pretty near the top, especially as we passed the 1.2 feature freeze
