Thanks! I of course already fixed the dereference isssue.

Well, I actually thought of doing one more development-stable release,
i.e. 0.33.4, before going to 0.34.0
The reason is that it's been over a year since the last stable
release, and I would like to have more testing time with the
distributions. Although 0.33.2 is already in Fedora F23 for the past 2
months, only a week ago 0.33.2 was released to debian testing. That's
not enough time, IMO.

So, I was thinking of doing 0.33.4 sometime at the start of October,
with all the new patches added by then. Then, after about 2-3 months
do 0.34.0. Bottom line, the intention is to have 0.34.0 included in
the Spring releases (Fedora 24, Ubuntu 16.04 lts), which means it
should be released sometime around December/January.
