That contradicts what a certain Lars Ingebrigtsen wrote in
this bug thread in 2011:

  That sounds reasonable, but I'm not quite sure that's how the predicate
  is meant to be used.  That is, I'm not sure it's an implementation
  detail what buffer the predicate is called from, or whether it's
  supposed to be that way.

  Anybody know?
