Thanks, that provides a lot more context. I've changed the commit message

Is that a good summary of the situation?

Vietnamese users: Is this a change we should be asking for upstream, for

permanent Debian-specific change seems bad.

At the moment, we apply this patch to GTK+ 2 and GTK+ 3, but not to GTK+ 4.
