FYI, I'm just starting to act as regression tracker again and will add
this to the list of tracked regressions.

Feel free to ignore the rest of this message, it's intended for the
regression tracking bot I'm writing. This "regzbot" in fact is running
now and this is the first regression that gets added to the database
(I'm sure despite a lot of testing something will go wrong, but don't
worry about it, I'll deal with it on my side). See also:
