(It seems to happen also in stable releases.)

In the cases that I checked, like those above, the subtree without
description contains packages which only have "accessibilty::input" as a
tag, whereas the other contains packages with more than a tag.

Newline characters were added to the last tag (or the only one), and it
caused extra problems like classifying the tag in their own subtree due
to the new-line mismatch in the tag name.
