FWIW, I'm OK with the new behavior, even as the default behavior.

(I do think the behavior should be user configurable, however.  And
I think it is best not to change the default behavior, especially
without polling users.)

[And this bug should NOT have been merged with bug #17902, which
simply points out that the new behavior is not reflected in the doc.]
