Missing sign off so I can't apply.  Also, please add an appropriate fixes
tag.

Once that's fixed I'll probably be a bit naughty with this one and
mark it for stable, but take it for the next merge window. Bug has been
there a while without anyone noticing so I don't mind delaying fixing it
a little longer to make it easier to merge the rest of the series.

Thanks,

Jonathan
