FYI, this bug now affects the current stable release (jessie), since
2.9.2+dfsg1-1 didn't go into jessie due to an even worse bug.

On my side, while this bug was an important regression, I solved it by
adding --noent (which was actually what I really wanted).

Anyway the previous behavior was also a bit incorrect (with a security
issue, fixed by 2.9.1+dfsg1-4), seen without --noout.
