Yes, I'd taken the cowardly approach of scheduling it for 3.14, with a
3.13.x backport.

Nobody answered my question!  Is this a new bug or is it a
five-year-old bug which we only just discovered?

I guess it doesn't matter much - we should fix it in 3.13.  I'll
include it in the next for-3.13 batch.
