Hmm.  I vaguely remember this.  I remember asking Corinna to look into
this but neither of us had an actual test case that tickled the bug.
I can't find any email from Corinna explaining why the bug was backed
out but I wonder if I asked her to do this in a phone call or something.

Have you tried doing a full configure/build with the ash as modified below?
If so, maybe it is safe to check this in.

I will wait for Corinna to come back from holiday so that she can offer
the definitive opinion, though.

Thanks for tracking this down.  I was going to look into this myself this
weekend.  You saved me from some "enjoyable" ash hacking.  :-)
