Hi Maulik,

Let me try to elaborate what's being mentioned here, just in case things
weren't clear( I had to discuss the issue with sebas later on in the IRC to
really get a grip of what was going here).

different locations. That has to be taken care of :)

You should, however, also have read the comments, as this "solution" is the exact same as in that patch. I'm not sure what's going on here, but you should try not to step on each others toes.
