Preferably, we should contrast this warning with an example of FLOSS
doing better, and there could just be such a chance.

Camstudio, a screen recording software, is released under the GNU GPL
and has been reported to cause the same problems - someone already
reported the issue to them:

http://camstudio.org/forum/discussion/1117/cannot-add-layer-to-layer-group-while-using-camstudio-2-6/p1

But Terry Britton states that, while being the maintainer of Camstudio,
he is not a programmer (camstudio.org, A Plea For Help ...), and so the
very specific inquiry in that forum post (does camstudio do anything to
that list of libraries) was probably misleading. There seem to be some
programmers around there, though.

So if we follow up on that post and point out that this is still an
issue, we might get some nice research going on there.
