FYI: I'm traveling visiting family Wednesday to Wednesday now. And while I had planned to work remotely for much of this stretch (probably taking a half day here or there), at the airport in the security line I found myself inadvertently laptop-less. I've attempted to see if someone at home could ship it to me, but this is looking less and less likely by the day given I haven't heard back on the text I sent.

So for the moment, I'm betting it's likely I won't be able to look into this till next Thursday. :-(

Back now, looking into the bug 1545015/bug 1545034/bug 1546313 triad that are almost certainly all an algorithmic concern with the column-computation approach. Just so anyone watching knows...

Depends on: 1549758

The regressing patch ended up being backed out, and a fresh approach (bug 1551916) has not received any reports of regressions similar to this.
