Yeah, we just pushed a not-so-great fix for this problem in the 
stable-2.0 branch...your patch removes code that was added to fix 
another unusual case.

The existing approach isn't very good, so I put a fix on it that wasn't 
very good either for the time being, and will rewrite this function 
entirely in the development branch.
