The very last hunk of the patch should at least be applied, as it fixes an issue in the finalize() function.  The rest of it is just to make sure the behavior is the same as the prior release with respect to the secondary.

I'd prefer if the whole patch was applied, but I can break out the last hunk for a very small patch if that's what you think we should do.
