Hello Max,

your patch works like a charme. One of my guys tested it on 2 boxes and =
it
works now like it worked before. Speed is great again and we think about
installing it on 2 production boxes where customers really have =
problems. Is
it save to patch production boxes with it?

Many thanks,

Keal
