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


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.
