i'm honestly annoyed by how this went.
please regard the rest of this email in rant-mode, triggered by my
personal annoyance. i just have to vent my frustration.

after [732] was escalated to "show stopper" i provided a fix for the
problem, with a plead for testing and (quite detailed, i think)
instructions on how *anybody* could do this testing, no git nor
compilation skills required.

henri and lucarda responded (but afaict, they only use windows), nobody
else seemed to care. (probably christof tested as well, but he is also
on windows).

i probably should have just ignored that "show stopper".
probably i should ignore *this* problem as well.

to put simply, it is impossible: we *never* had *correct* behaviour.

of course we could go back to the "earlier" behaviour, but that was
buggy (and the recent modifications are attempts to fix this bug).
i'm not sure that the new bugs are more severe than the old ones.
