Unfortunately I don't know what might have fixed that; maybe you'll get
a better advice, but if not, you can at least use git bisect to find out
what fixed that.

First of all, install the 4.0 alphas / betas to see if it was fixed
between the first 4.0 builds - if yes, it limits the time when it was
fixed.  If not, at least the bug says that still had the
problem; in other words, try to limit the versions where the problem

And then git bisect; there are descriptions on the web how to do that,


Unfortunately it will mean a few rebuilds - but should point you the
commit quite reliably when you are bisecting ~recent code.

Hope that helps,
