Again, would you mind telling what exactly does the above refer to and whether
it is still true? I'm not asking to put details in every time you mention
something of that sort, but generally one is expected to come up with those
on demand, especially if the bug _is_ easily triggered.

You, IIRC, had been Cc'd on the threads where open_tree breakage was
dealt with. I can certainly believe that there might be something else
in that area (or any other, for that matter). I *am* interested in finding
and fixing that and I would rather appreciate the details of what you
are seeing.
