Yes I had a local copy working with couple of lines fix. But someone else, I think Stephen added a fix patch for the same, and I assume if it's been merged, should be working, so did not follow up later. 

I don't have a VMware setup handy at moment but I think Waterman would have more information about testing that patch if he has found any issue with it.
