This is a known bug and as been patched.  You'll need to apply both
patches (01 & 02) to the 1.8.4 tree.  I mentioned this as a symptom on the
web site when listing the patch. :)

Put the patches anywhere, change to the AS tree and apply patches as -
bzip2 -cd patch-01 | patch p1
then do the same for patch-02 (and patch 03 if you want).
