My point is that without testing, you have no way to know that that
variation is not correct, and perhaps even necessary.  Given that this
code has been through many releases already, I think the odds that you
are breaking something are higher than the odds that you are fixing
something.  I think you should leave well enough alone until we get an
actual bug report showing that there's a problem.
