Argh, I bet this is the same problem as bug 656875.  I backed out that patch when I backed out bug 10209 the first time, but among the tens of patches which I was keeping around, that patch got lost.  I'm trying a local build to see if reapplying that patch fixes this problem.

Yes, this is indeed fixed by the patch in bug 656875, which I've just pushed to inbound.

I'll keep this open to add a test based on the attached testcase.
Depends on: 656875
