you've sent this to the bc author already ?
The author of the blog where I found it had submitted the patch upstream, but I don't think they release often and figured it could be patched in gentoo until they did. I also have since discovered gentoo bug #264889 which has another small fix that might be rolled in if you decide to patch ours. Your call :)
i just wanted to make sure it has been sent upstream
I'm the blog author. I sent it upstream, and it's rolled in.
Unfortunately this is hidden due to no public repo or mailing list.
Anyway I'm very impressed with gentoo fixing this so quickly :)
