Off-topic, I'm kind of surprised it took that long to fix it (if I am
parsing things correctly).

I believe Stephan Mueller wrote up the weakness a couple of years ago.
He's the one who explained the interactions to me. Mueller was even
cited at

It is too bad he Mueller not receive credit for it in the CVE database.
