Hi, thanks for the report!

I wonder if there's a way to fix rather than working around it.  I plan to have a closer look today or tomorrow.

Hello again,

I was able to narrow conditions (see subject change history) but I was not able to fix the issue for real.

So I reported the bug upstream ( and went with your workaround for now:
