And just for clarification, this looks like a very special bug which
appears only under some special circumstances. That is why it is very
difficult to reproduce. And that is why I had to ask everyone if they
can check whether it is reproducible on their system.

In other words, it will go fine for most people. We are only
interested by the few cases where it does not go fine :)
