As it happens, it was fixed and was released within a
day of me reporting the bug, and Arch picked it up within a day
of that. The odd thing is that, though the revision I found
pinpointed the bug to is one commit after the tag,
the people who've reported the bug here have all been on
on debian. And, given debian's notoriously indolent release
cycle, it could be ages before the next update.

At any rate, the patch does solve the problem in an affected
revision for me, I'm just loathe to release yet *another* bug
fix release so soon without confirmation.
