[texhax] BibTeX middle initials disappearing; has this problem been solved?

To whom it may concern,

Has the issue discussed at the top of page 207 of the article 


ever been resolved?  That is, if my .bib file contains an author field such as

author = "D.E. Knuth"

and the .bst file that I use abbreviates first names to initials, is there any way to change that .bst file so that the "E." doesn't disappear from the final .bbl file (while first names are still abbreviated to initials)?  Or is the only solution still to manually change the author fields in the .bib file to

author = "D. E. Knuth"

I ask this only because the article I linked to is from 1998.

Thank you for your help,
