Comment 142 for bug 933776

What I think confuses us is the fact that this default behavior is a
regression on the behavior of the previous version, or else there wouldn't
be all these reports and Quantal would show the same wrong behavior.

I have just been packaging a patch someone was kind to write and provide,
as long as it works with the updated packages I'll continue to publish it.
This won't be fixed as have been said by various people, maybe we should
just let it go...

Cheers,
Bruno
