r1501338 was never backported to 1.8.x. So far, I hadn't heard a detailed
explanation of what exactly was wrong -- it was simply rejected on grounds
of being a "destructive change" without further details.
I've since removed the backport nomination in r1665846.

You've now provided a good reason for reverting r1501338 on trunk and 1.9.x
and closing issue #4390 as WONTFIX.
