I had a quick look and it appears to be present as far back as 2002/06
in 2.4. I'm a bit puzzled why I haven't seen it before as I'm sure I've
tested this over the years, never the less it looks so clearly wrong to
me know.

It's a bug fix and given it's been around so long, not a widely used.

Personally I'd like to get it into 2.6.18.
As always I'm happy with whatever decision you make.

Ian
