I still don't understand your technical point like I said,
I didn't tell you to bugger off but instead to check what
I wrote because I spent time to describe the issue and you
didn't seem to make any reference to this to help me
understand what was wrong, so the conversation was going

I'm still sorry that you're reacting like this. I'm not a
maintainer. I try as much as I can to be a contributor and

Here I sent a diff to provide more background to the issue
and open a discussion. I personnaly apologise if it were

I'd like this conversation to continue about the original
intent, which was requesting help on this deadlock issue.
