I worry about this as well. I still do not understand why my changes
have caused this problem; I'd rather not be taking the approach to
redoing the implementation of viper during release candidate.

Still, if, as I suspect, it's because the timing of boundaries has
changed slightly, it's likely to be the only choice.
