Ouch.  I actually had a vague memory of something like this, but then I
couldn't find the patch that fixed this, and saw the log from yesterday
I somehow figured the bug wasn't fixed after all.

The underlying reason is that we haven't merged maint to branch-1.11 and
master since.

Apologies.  I am going to revert my patch and do the merges.

Thanks for spotting this,
