Yes, you are correct. The problem this patch tries to fix is theoretical in
nature at this point. However my feeling is stable tree has got rather
benevolent in accepting patches in last months and Greg wishes it stays that
way so I'm objecting only to patches I know introduce regressions at this
point.
