Does anyone know whatever became of the Ima::DBI patch for this?  If i
remember Perrin posted a couple  on the old list.   I do not remember
an agreement being reached as if it should be applied and it appears
to not have been applied to the last release (sept. 5) of Ima::DBI.

Is the fix on the wiki what people are still using?
