With the patch that avoids "maybe-rewrite-setup" patch, regression was
fine. I started again from a clean repo, includes were found (I guess

Search for runner "igaztanaga" in

so the problem seems to be related to "maybe-rewrite-setup".

Here we go:

Yes. I tried to subscribe before posting here but got no reply. I've
