Hello Guix,

The attached patch is supposed to fix <https://bugs.gnu.org/30370>.  I
am posting this here and not on guix-patches as I am not familiar with
the internals of guix and do not know what the intended behaviour of
this was.

I have checked that it actually fixes the problem.  However I do not
know if it breaks anything.
