Thanks for pointing that out.  I think 139 is more likely then.

Looking at the tracker issue, I see its priority has changed from
Low->Medium, and then from Medium->Low.  But this was four years ago,

I think it's a great idea to add your example to the tracker, but I
don't know if changing the priority is going to give it that much more
attention.  However, this is just my perspective on things.
