This patch has been applied to 3.6.x branch of nx-libs a while ago...

Backporting to 3.5.x is optional, not especially recommended here. As  
we plan to release nx-libs 3.6.x in June 2016, I reckon that backport  
this patch is not release critical for TheQVD.

@Nito, if it is, please give feedback. Thanks.
