Created attachment 361506 [details] [diff] [review]
patch v1.0

bug 477739 shows a case where preventive maintenance in an unexpected situation could move roots, as an additional level of protection we should filter out them.
I checked that actually there's no way preventive maintenance could cause harm to roots, but if something other causes an un-coherence on them, we could end up doing more damage.

I think, while investigating on bug 477739 original causes, we should take this asap on both trunk and branch, and possibly for b3.
