Hi Charles, thanks for offering to check this.

I’ve attached a patch for the emacs-26 branch that reverts
d9d383147219f8e6a90d4c177e1b454e19acfac9. It doesn’t revert cleanly,
hence the patch. You could try reverting it on master if you want, but
I suspect it will be harder to do.

Once that’s applied try the reproduction steps in

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=18757#41

Basically the code in question has at least one reproducible bug and
looks as though it should have several more that we haven’t seen yet,
and although we have a work‐around we’re wondering if we can just get
rid of it completely as it appears to have been a work‐around for a
bug introduced in macOS 10.10 and fixed some time later, hopefully
before 10.10 stopped getting fixes.
