The current code has been in use for 11 months. Beside this bug report,
nobody has worried about that. And the problems this bug report speaks

Again, it is a matter of not touching code so close to a release. 35+
years experience in software development tell me so. Often enough I've
changed just one single line, because "it is obvious it cannot be
