(While generally agree) that would be distraction from whatever I'm
doing at the moment and a hassle of finding source tree, updating,
checking didn't let me do so, so I deceided to send here first(while I'm here)
and deal with binutils later. 

After looking a little more on the problem itself - it is certainly a 
bug. Would it change your opinion on the procedure in that case?
