 Hi Julien:
 I've committed the patch, with minor style tweaks, to stable/8. I also =
 communicated, a few days ago, to re@ that we need to get this fix into =
 the next 8.4 release candidate, and they are willing to hold the release =
 candidate for the merge. I'll ping re@ and find out how quickly they =
 want me to do the releng/8.4 merge. Regardless, it sounds like it will =
 successfully make 8.4
 Thanks again for your patience over the last few months, and also for =
 the assiduous debugging and patch generation!
