Indeed. I do remember writing the patches last year thinking "this should
really get fixed", but apparently I failed to describe the actual problem at
the time. I have gone through it again and annotated what I found now,
but I have a feeling that there were additional problems with the old
code that I still did not capture.

Sending v2 now: same code, more text.
