On my end, it's mostly for lack of time.  But having just looked at it,
I can't see what the problem is about really.  I mean, your patch looks
fine, but it's not clear what it's fixing.  I've read your explanation,
but I think it's too subtle to explain with only text.

I just installed your patch into trunk, since it looks sane.

But I'd be interested to hear a concrete description of the problematic
behavior this bug could introduce.
