Hi Paul,

Thank you for reporting this issue, with reproduction script and all.

It's fine that you try to draw a little attention to it with your post to
dev@. However, at this time resources are quite low in our little dev
community, so I'm not sure when someone will be able to take a closer look.

Patches are always welcome of course :-), but I know that not everyone has
the time to go that route ...

Regardless, thanks for the issue report.
