While I understand that this patch in launchpad fixes the reported
behaviour, I don't understand why upstream did not want to accept it.
Could there be unintended/undesired side-effects?

I could definitely apply this to the Debian package, but I want to take
this questioning upstream first.  It's been a long time, and maybe they
have a better understanding of the problem, now.

I don't have a good understanding of the problem, myself. :)

Thanks for reporting.
