For reference, I am no longer able to reproduce the problem using the
provided recipe. Since the report, I have upgraded my system libraries
and Emacs (to the latest commit on master).

Now, I am not really sure if this patch is going to be an improvement.
Unless you have objections, I am marking the patch cancelled - I no
longer see any clear benefit of the patch.
