I understood what you said, but as written above I disagree: the same
"confusing" behavior can happen at times with the old code.  It's just
a lot less frequent.  So it's a question of frequency rather
than a qualitative difference.

Obviously not, I have no idea why you take the idea that I think you
said so.
