Thank you for that concise and clear description.

The second pair of revisions is divided cleanly between r11557 providing the
fix and r11696 providing the regression test.

My initial feeling was that it would be cleaner to withdraw the regression test
(r11696) from the branch, because it is not essential to keep the regression
tests completely up to date in a patch-level release - but, on the other hand,
it is sensible to have tests on the branch for the bugs that have been fixed on
the branch.

Since the alternative (to disable part of the regression test on the branch) is
trivial, that seems like a good solution. I am happy now that I understand the
situation, and will leave it to you (plural) now.

(The reason I was confused and spoke up in the first place is mainly because of
the suggestion that we might want to make the same change to the trunk. I
assume it's clear that we don't want to.)
