I tried this on a different machine today and it still just works for
me, so I've not managed to re-create this bug yet.

I'll keep on trying; I haven't given up yet.

Of course, if there is anyone else within earshot who is willing to test
this, please do and report your findings.

P.S. Please don't top-post. In-context replies are the preferred way to
comment on specific bits of instruction and code.
