This should be fixed now.  The change here was one of my attempts to speed
up Adam's big merge (which takes "forever").  Alas, I eliminated one too
many checks in hopes of speeding things up a bit.

It managed to sneak through because I made the mistake of changing the
darcs repo to use "setpref test" rather than "./darcs_test", and pushed
(well, sent) one other patch along with that change, and neither of them
ended up getting tested (since ./darcs_test was removed before the setpref
test took effect), which allowed the bug in.  :(

Now I'm being double-extra-careful to always run the tests... pretty soon
I'll probably settle down and get back to just running the tests on
