With my SRU hat on I am a bit reluctant about accepting this into xenial. Don't get me wrong: I'm not saying no, but it's certainly something I need to know a bit more about to make a proper decision.

The reported problem of course does seem like a bug, but my doubts come from the complexity of the required changes more than anything else. The backported commit for code changes itself seems to be 149 additions and 181 deletions + documentation changes. The changes look a bit invasive, I would like to learn more on how severe this issue is. Is it worth the risk for a bug that's currently set to importance Medium? How frequently does this affect users? From what the reporter mentions there is some working workaround for the problem - does it have any shortcomings?
