Aw, I liked the insane near miss but oh well, the rest of the change log still good.

Yeah, I kind of liked it, too. That's why it "survived" for so long even though I knew it was kind of broken. But people started exploiting it and bending the game in ways that really shouldn't happen. So I had to clamp it down a bit.
