[tex-live] Commath package + french babel

I hope this is the right place to 'file' this issue, otherwise please
tell me where to do that properly.
Whenever I use the 'commath' and the 'babel' (with [french] option)
packages, pdflatex seems to enter an infinite loop whenever a colon ':'
appears in math mode.
- This happens no matter how I order the 'usepackage' commands.
- It does not happen with xelatex
- It is fixed by commenting out the 'Fix alignment of := in mathmode'
section in the commath.sty file.
This might be linked to the way double punctuation is modified by babel
in french mode (unbreakable thin space ?), but I really don't know
enough about TeX/LaTex to understand what's going on.
Any ideas ?
The culprit section in commath.sty:
% Fix alignment of := in mathmode
Sample .tex which fails to compile with pdflatex. Uncomment the xltxtra
package to get a successful compilation with xelatex.
