Sigh, the motto "be liberal in what you accept and conservative in what you send" applies to BOTH parties. The failure of one party not to liberally accept what is received does not excuse the sending party from being conservative in what they send. And vice-versa. Just because one vendor has issued a patch does not excuse the other vendor.
