'Sokay... I'm just in a bad mood because, after making that change, erlc
started to hang on *all* source files, so I had to reinstall R9C!

So, word to the wise: don't make the same change I did.

Yes, it's too small a bug to worry about, but - well, I don't mind
things crashing (much), but it annoys me when they hang, is all...
