Not true. Just because YOU can't reproduce it doesn't mean it isn't
happening. Others have reproduced the problem and also commented as such
on the bug report.

...but I suppose that if you had bothered to go actually read the bug
report, you would have known that.

So, please list out your system configuration as relevant to this area
of function. Perhaps you have somehow stumbled into a workable
work-around configuration.
