Really?  I was just starting to think otherwise.

The one of this bug report which IIUC even you consider "an occasional
problem" ;-)

OK.  Then I have a motivation to revert it.

I think that I misjudged the severity of the problem.  Drew's latest
reports hint at some mysterious behavior which I haven't been able to
understand yet so I'm suspecting potential culprits around every corner.
