Alan and I normally deal with these.  When one slips through
cracks email-wise it is unlikely to be revisited unless someone
points it out which is what appears to have happened to these.

I'll take care of them.

In general it would be nice if someone kept an eye on the SAC
bug queue and followed up on items that get neglected.
