This fix is good, but I do not see it as crucial. For this reason, and 
because I have the impression that we are fairly close to being able to 
release 0.7.0 RSN, I don't know if a backport to 0.6.x and subsequent 
release is really worth it.

That said, nothing stops us from releasing 0.6.8 and starting a beta 
for 0.7.0 in a few weeks, if the release of 0.6.8 does not steal too 
much resource from our actual goal...
