Generally it saves time if you provide all the details again, even if
they can be found in some archive somewhere.  Then I don't have to go
dig up some information.

OK, it looks like I was wrong about this problem being fixed in
2.0.13.  But it does seem to be fixed in my current 2.0.x sources, so
it should be fixed in 2.0.14.  The fix should also be in the latest
test release if you would like to verify that it works for you before
2.0.14 (that would be helpful, because if it does not, then perhaps it
could be fixed before the actual release).

| Wasn't clear it was a bug or simply something I didn't understand.
