You said this was "more complex than just fixing the mac port."  I
understood it to mean that this is not necessarily just a MacOS bug, and
thus should not matter only to those who care about MacOS.  If I
misunderstood, sorry.  Also see below.

Just because *any* bug only shows up on MacOS doesn't necessarily mean
it only happens on MacOS, or that it only matters on MacOS.  You seem to
be saying that is the case for this particular bug.  I'm sure you know
the internals much better than me, but you haven't said that it's known
to only matter on MacOS so I'm not assuming it.  You said it was
reported before, that's all.  I actually couldn't find that previous bug
report, so if you could point me to it I'd appreciate it.
