Usually people will use Montecello, so they make some changes and then
save them to the inbox repository for review. For the type of issue
that you reported, the fix is likely to be a small snippet of code,
so it would be perfectly fine to just make a small change set or a
fileout of the changed method and send it here to the list (and maybe
attach it to your Mantis report). In other words, if you have a proposed
fix and are not sure what to do with it, just do whatever is most
convenient for you, and refer to your Mantis bug report so people
will have the background :)

I'm glad that you entered the Mantis report. That keeps the issue
from getting lost, and even if it does not get fixed right away,
there is a pretty good chance that someone will address it eventually.
