Could you please provide more detail on what exactly is broken and how
that could be reproduced in a test? I don't like the idea of just
reverting earlier commits (patches 1 and 2) without clear description of
how the items fixed in those earlier commits are addressed. Patch 2 is
reverting a commit from seven years ago which seems to imply that there
has not really been that significant an issue if this comes up only
