It wasn't reported until now, was it?  So I guess it's only visible
under some conditions that don't happen very often.

It happens always when selecting text with the mouse in HTerm, I think that happens very often. Perhaps people just ignore the error message most of the time.

Can you tell since when do we have this bug?  If it exists long
enough, I don't think we should do this on the release branch, it goes
against the criteria for bug fixes there.

What are the criteria? CONTRIBUTE states
"Release branches […] are mainly
intended for more-conservative changes such as bug fixes. […]
If you are fixing a bug that exists in the current release, be sure to
commit it to the release branch; […]"
For me this makes it clear that bug fixes are always appropriate on the release branches. If the actual policy is different, please document it in CONTRIBUTE.
I've seen some talk about bugfix-only releases, but I think the policy should be clearer and better documented to avoid such discussions.
