Sorry. I keep trying to find time to fix this and a few other bugs, but I'm very busy right now.

AFAIR, originally I wanted a small change, just throw an error in a specific case, and Stefan pushed for a bigger (though, I suppose, cleaner) fix; there was some back-and-forth and we finally settled on what's installed. So perhaps you can go back, reread the bug thread and find something in the proposed solutions that fixes the original problem and does not cause the one you're reporting.
