You're quite welcome. Thanks for testing it.

For a moment I did attempt to augment the patch in a way that would
fix the poor antialiasing quality for dashed curves, but the code got
_really_ ugly, (and likely would have caused the current lame
tessellator to explode).

So I've committed the patch as is, and it will be in 1.0.2.

We'll have to wait on fixing dashed-curve-antialiasing-quality for the
oft-promised tessellator rewrite.
