OK, so not even required for hybrid.

I'm sure I tested this last December and it worked properly, though
I haven't tested it recently.  Could you confirm that it was
broken in 4.0.0 (without your patch)?

Keir, if you are putting all of the hybrid VM patches
into 4.0.1, then this should go in as well.  If not,
please hold off until we confirm there was a fix (and
I don't have multiple machines free to test it right now,
so if Stefano confirms it was broken in 4.0.0, I'm
OK with the fix).
