One of us must be very confused.  Perhaps you were looking at a
wrong message (or I quoted a wrong one?).

  ... goes and double checks ...

One of the review points were about this piece in the test:

    I cannot see how this could have ever worked.

And I still don't see how your "would work just fine" can be true.

There may be others, but $gmane/210745 is also relevant, I think.

What we merge may not be perfect.  Bugs and misdesigns are often
identified long after a topic is merged and it is perfectly normal
we fix things up in-tree.  There are even times where we say "OK, it
is known to break if the user does something that pokes this and
that obscure corners of this code, but the benefit of merging this
99% working code to help users that do not exercise the rare cases
is greater than having them wait for getting the remaining 1% right,
so let's merge it with known breakage documentation".

But it is totally a different matter to merge a crap with known
breakage that is one easy fix away from the get-go.  Allowing that
means that all the times we spend on reviewing patches here go
wasted, discouraging reviewers.

If you want others to take your patches with respect, please take
reviewers' comments with the same respect you expect to be paid by
