Well, yes, but before you post code that you claim is a fix for a 
problem, it's a good idea to give it the once-over to be sure it works, 
is the point the original poster was trying to make, I think.  Sure, 
posting buggy code and asking for help is, indeed, one of the main points 
of the list, but that's a different thing. :)  The code in question 
wasn't posted asking for help, but as an example of how to fix a problem, 
which is a whole different sack of potatoes.

By the way, I never even looked at the code that was posted, as it didn't 
interest me, so it might even be fine and bug-free.  *shrug*
