Quick, Henry! The Flit!

I have spent the day exterminating a buglet that crept in with my last bug fix. I had correctly analyzed all of the cases except one, where -- instead of performing the analysis -- I looked at some old code and said "Well, they must have known what they were doing" and copied the old code.

It turns out that the right thing to do would have been to delete the old code. And I have now done so. And the test case that I got from our testers now runs correctly.

If I can just get permission to check the change in, I can declare victory.

Ok, I've declared victory. I'm waiting for the other side to surrender...
