The 4.8.0 release is broken, but the 4.9.0 one is not. It's unfortunate,
but "4.9.0" may refer to "the 4.9.0 release" or to "some point after trunk
forked 4.8 branch up to and including the 4.9.0 release point". In this
case, it's the latter -- this can be inferred from the fact that the
fix went into trunk in October 2013 while 4.9.0 was branched and released
during the first half of 2014.
