Are you happy for the PR to be closed now, or do you want to wait until
you've done root cause analysis using automated bisection as described

It would be interesting to know where the issue got resolved.

That said, if it was an issue in the host compiler (e.g., older gcc
with a bug in temp file handling), then it's quite feasible that
the bug is observed in a build of -current after the 9.3.0 gcc was
imported - i.e., the PR being 6 weeks after said import - depending
upon the age of the host compiler.
