Yes, it probably should.

It was once. Between v1.44 and 1.45, this happened:
- if (nfree < c->gc_minfree_threshold)
+ if (c->fmc->dirty_size < c->gc_minfree_threshold)
Mea Culpa. I got the replacement wrong.
Actually I was thinking of dropping both of those and changing it to
if (dirty_size > free_size)
