How sure are we that this patch fixes the issue?

Assuming that it does fix it, then I think our options are:
- release what we have anyway, and follow up with a patch release
  removing our workaround when it's no longer needed
- wait for the patch to be released

My personal preference is for the latter option, but I think either
option is OK. I don't like the idea of a stable release built from an
unreleased version of BDWGC.
