I also did some bisecting to see when the problem first occurred. In
fact I saw it first after got committed.
Obviously this does not mean that this is the culprit since the bug
could just have been triggered by that in my case. But it could also
be that this change invalidates some assumptions that were made in the
original implementation as described in my previous mails.

Richard, since it seems the original implementation of this idea
( and the
patch that seems to break it
( are from
you, you might have the best idea of what might be going wrong here.
