In my initial report I wrote: "The issue is covered by [3], so trying
to reproduce the issue leads to an assertion failure up to the version
in sid instead."

My point was, yes if you try to reproduce with current version you
will reach the assertion, because it's yet covered by the missing
commit 4241ae6fbbf1de9658764a80944dc8108f2b4154. Applying that as well
shows the underlying issue.

Hope this helps!
