This sounds like

The fix is on its way. Nothing is deliberately broken.;a=commitdiff;h=b99faf1b798d6d0e33526fd2cef55a405c08ff09;hp=58b6e124aac64bebb2e9e1a136cbd21a5ab0485a

o.k my diff skills sucks, but(hopefully) backported correctly, sent
out to stable@xxxxxxxxxxxx

let me know if you get this or not(seems gmail is not showing my
sent mail)..

I got it, and the backported patch, thanks. I'll queue it up in the
