The entire issue is a result of me accepting a pull request to master,
followed by a fix to an issue only observed on master.
In addition I also wasn't fully aware of the use of master essentially
as a release branch.
While I will be more careful in the future to avoid such mistakes, I
also think it might be useful to prevent (forbid) pull requests to
master to begin with.
