fine with me.  I filed a PR on it (8361, see ), but was
leaving it up to fvdl's discretion to do anything about it.

Note also that the following patch:

was pulled up to the branch to help with one set of the probe
problems, but is by no means sufficient to solve all, or, as far as I
can tell, most of them.
