The fix is not mine, I have opened a ticket, the author has written a fix and I just wanted to clone to check if the fix has fixed the issue.
Thanks for the link, though, I'll make sure to check it out.

FYI, instead of preparing a patch and attaching it to a bug report you could consider working directly on the development version of a library and propose a pull request with the fix on GitHub. Here is a tutorial showing how this could be done: https://github.com/boostorg/geometry/wiki/Contribution-Tutorial It was made for Geometry but the procedure looks the same for any other library.
