Regardless of where the bug is, it certainly is very aggravating and I
don't really see its usefulness.
Any strong objections to this patch?

Could a GWP maintainer comment on this patch? An informal poll on IRC
didn't produce any strong objections to the idea. But I think only GWP
maintainers can actually approve this.
