since I couldn't reproduce, I decided it's worth trying to see
what happens if we revert back to before 5c34d002dcc7.


Could you please test a tag "test" in my tree above?
It should point at 6d88af1bf359417eb821370294ba489bdf7f5ab8


That has reverts for code refactorings since 5c34d002dcc7
inclusive. If this finally works, maybe you could
go back and see which of the reverts helps?

The idea is that this only has refactorings nicely isolated,
if all else fails we can even do the reverts without losing
functionality.
