I thought we had a test case for this, and it seems that we did, but it
never made it into mainline.

Anshuman wrote it originally but then passed it onto Simon who
resubmitted it and I merged it, but then I must have reverted the EBB
test because it was failing, see:


So it would be good to get that test case working reliably. I'm not sure
if would have found this bug anyway, but it would be a start.
