hmm so then how long j.random.user would have to wait for it? MiNT 1.12? ;)

yup. btw there were are a few more useful 1.09 patches i haven't seen
back, like select-for-multiple-processes, quotes in mint.cnf setenv...

sticky-bit on for compatibility and only inherit that to directories?
(so shared-text binaries are not all sticky too.)
