After re-reading the thread briefly (there're just five messages)

I think the "breakage" the patch tries to fix seems to be of dubious
nature in the first place ("I don't know how I ended-up with such a
bookmark", Antoine says in $gmane/239800), and it has been in
"Expecting a reroll" state in response to "I will try to come-up
with an improved version" in $gmane/240069 but nothing has happened
for a few months.

At this point I think it would be OK for me to discard the topic
(without prejudice); if the root cause of the issue (if there is
one) and a proper fix is discovered in the future, the topic can
come back with a fresh patch, but it appears to me that keeping the
above patch in my tree would not help anybody.
