Ouch :-( This shows once again that our current testsuite coverage for the
Vala support is inadequate (and that my knowledge of Vala is pitiful, but
that was already waaay too clear I guess).

That would be great, thank you! But if you do so, could you please try
to keep your test as short as possible (< 15 lines), to avoid issues with
I know this sounds like an absurd request, but the fact is: I'd like to
apply your fix and add your new test ASAP (for an "emergency" 1.11.5
release), and that would basically become impossible if we were to wait
for a copyright assignment form to fly over the Atlantic :-( But if
your change is small and simple enough, the FSF allows it to be applied
without a copyright disclaimer, so we could have the new release in
a couple of days.
Thanks again for your help,
