No, I haven't posted anything on their forums yet... I've been a bit busy 
with personal problems, but I guess it could be a good idea to let them know 
that the patch is functional. Also, if more OF admins could confirm that it 
fixes the problem and report that upstream, that would be great. Regarding a 
new release, imho this bug alone should force a 3.7.1 release, as it is 
quite a blocker for anyone who wishes to have functional S2S services.
