I can confirm this. Using Intrepid.
This would be a good feature, but if it gets implemented, then make an option so that one can disable it. I think this should be wishlist. Thanks.

It corrects very simple just by adding one #ifndef and uncommenting one-two lines of code.

OK. I think I fixed the patch (just manually applied it by hand), but can someone check it for me? Thanks in advance! I'll link my branch, too. I'm not sure how to test this, so I'm not going to set this for merging.
