AFAIU the code, I agree with you, but Stefan evidently didn't see it
that way at the time, and while the ChangeLog doesn't indicate whether a
problem was being fixed (and I found no discussion about it by skimming
through the emacs-devel archive), he disputed there was a bug when Johan
Bockgård reported exactly this issue a few months after the change.  But
I don't feel competent enough to argue against it, so I'm bowing out here.
