I am sorry, but did you look at the patch? Seriously, why do we need a branch
for a change with a core part that fits into a screen? And what is wrong with
testing different scenarios after "svn patch"-ing the trunk?

We know that there is a problem, and here is a patch that solves it. It is not
like I would send some sort of a work-in-progress to this mailing list with a
[PATCH] tag in the title; it's ready to be committed. Based on my judgement,
this patch is good, and I actually wanted to commit this directly. However,
I also want to avoid any possible kind of bias here, and be sure that a change
like this does not remain unnoticed.

Do you have any sort of objections for this patch as solution for the defined
