Erh, well, sure, if you can track down your problem to the patch, then
back it out, by all means. If the patch causes it, however, that
means there's something seriously screwed up somewhere down below.
Also note that there are *other* subprocess-related bugs in the system
beside the one this patch is fixing---you have one pending yourself.
