I think we need to address 86711/86714 first.  However, neither approach
to 86711/86714 (Bernd's or yours) is sufficient alone to fix this bug.
This patch can be layered on top of either approach to 86711/86714 to
fix 87053 (I've actually tested that).

So let's table this, hopefully for just a day or so.  It's getting late
and I've got more tests to run on the 86714/86711 patches for comparison
purposes and some loose ends I want to look at in Martin's patch.  I'd
hoped to be finished already, but wasn't able to move things as fast as
I hoped.
