Trading one bug for another obvious bug is unacceptable on master.
Likewise, with the initial version of "installsizechange" being

You must be more thorough with your work.  These kinds of "quick fix"
are unsuitable for applying to the master branch.

In the future, please submit your work as patches or prepare changes
on a separate branch for review.
