Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the fast response and the warm welcome :-)

I've moved my comment into RT-28754, so let's await Kevin's input. Will
work on a test class as the next thing as you've recommended.

I received confirmation of the OCA being processed just yesterday, so
should be OK from that front.
