Thanks for the pointer, these are really two different user-visible
symptoms of a single bug, and now BZ #15022.
Also the ports pieces are really inherent parts of the fix (they are
required by the fix proper, for the respective ports, and make no sense
without) and therefore hopefully can be applied as a single GIT commit
(contrary to what the wiki page referred suggests) so that there's no tree
version that's been fixed halfway through only (and cause new test suite
failures on IA-64 and MIPS).
