Indeed. It doesn't fix the bug however it happens less often.
We are searching for a solution that fix it completely but I don't
know if we could find it until the 1.0 tagging.
IMO it's slightly better with the patch than without so we should
consider pushing it anyway (if there isn't an alternative).
