Something that works on old versions and doesn't on newer versions can have
2 different reasons:
- regression bug
- tighter standards

Without a testcase for your bug, it will be hard to decide which applies

Anyways, this doesn't render the package unusable, since most use cases
just work. Downgrading to important until we know if it's a regression
or not.
