Well, regarding bug#13546 (which I really think is another symptom than
bug#13527, that is sharing the same root cause), you wrote:

I saw the announcement about 24.2.93 mid or end of last week, and waited for
Dany to expose a binary with that one (compiled by him on the 8th of Feb).

Besides that, I have to admit I stopped using 24.2.92 as it really was
unusable, and not compatible with my past work load. Things are as simple as
that. But I know it does not help, neither you, neither me.

I'll try to stick using 24.2.93, and report whatever I can.
