    Unfortunately the particular patch from Olaf is presumably covering up
    another bug that other people (including Olaf) had hit. So reverting
    it is going to introduce a different regression.

    I think this particular problem has _already_ bounced back and forth
    once. But I haven't been keeping count as most of the relevant patches
    weren't cc:ed to me.
