The "regression fixes" pre-release -rc period is for is to make sure
to avoid unwanted/unintended behaviour changes between releases.
People have _already_ seen and lived with these issues in released
versions. Changing it may or may not be getting it back to the
state to that of an even older release, but at that point the
differences do not matter. It is a "fix", too late for the kind of
regression fixes we focus during _this_ -rc period, which is about
regressions between v1.8.2 and 'master'.
