I have not dug into the code enough to find out exactly what's happening
in Peter's complaint, but it seems like it would be a good idea to find
that out before arguing along these lines.  It seems entirely likely
to me that this is somehow parallel-query-specific.  Even if it isn't,
I don't buy your argument.  Adding a new case in which context is
suppressed is a perfectly reasonable basis for thinking that an old
bug has acquired new urgency.
