What Joerg is telling you is that to call it a "regression" is
logically incorrect. The 5.0 behavior was nondeterministic and
sometimes wrong; the 6.0 behavior is deterministic and always right.
To detect and act on an error is a *correction*, not a regression, even
if you were negatively affected.
Would applying Joerg's patch not solve the problem you're addressing?
