Because there are two (or three) corruption problems! One is fixed by
Daniels's patch, the other isn't fixed yet AFAIC.
You're grumbling that I'm giving you information about the fix for one
problem, the one Chris was talking about and you replied to, while you're
interested in the other one (or both).

Read those above links again! Daniel's patch fixes that one corruption, the
above snippet has the same effect and works around the same bug, but neither
do fix that other corruption mentioned in the ticket.
