Don't shoot the messenger (=me), I have to discuss with the original
author and ask why he did things the way he did. I'll update the patch
when I have a better solution.

I was running bleeding edge, development version of NetBSD and it had a
bug for a short period of time (which is now fixed) and that had nothing
to do with Erlang. The official NetBSD release version did not suffer
from this bug. I admit I should have put a better commit message...
