Sorry, I misread the previous message. I thought we were talking about
the fix to the C++ side and to put it in HEAD only initially.

I think that this fix should go into all branches. IMO regardless of the
fact that the C++ side may be causing excessive hammering, we should
still make it so that we don't hit the server over and over for a class
that we know does not exist (for that instance).
