Thanks a lot for the follow-up details on this.

I think it's worth mentioning that it seems to be a relatively "recent"
regression, probably within the last 6 months or so. In the past, we
were clearly not seeing such a problem, and all patches were properly
recorded. The problem is frequent enough that we would have noticed.
