Hi Lindsay.

I see that you've solved your problem already, but just for the record
(in case someone goes through the list archives):

If a bug is found in code that has been already landed but it's not
causing test to fail or breaking the build, the best alternative is to
open a new bug and attach the patch there, just like you would do with
any other bug or change.

If it's causing tests to fail or broke the build and the fix is not
trivial, then it's reverted and the original bug is reopened.

Details on how to submit contributions are in the wiki:
