I could review, but then I'm not knowledgeable enough on the chart2
code to add any confidence.

I'm not so sure, since even Markus says in his post he doesn't really
understand the code that he's modified, and I'm not either.

The same pattern is used in the first part of the if statement, and
his patch only modifies the second part. Is that a legitimate change,
or should the first part be modified also?  I don't know the chart2
code well enough to answer that question.  Also, what would be the
risk of this change; what functionalities of the chart be affected by
this change?

My honest recommendation is to keep this change in master only for the
time being, and consider backporting when we feel more confident of
this change.  I've been burned in the past by the very changes I made
in chart2 which I though were safe but ended up causing

Sorry about not giving my thumbs-up.
