It was also extremely short-lived (it therefor deserves short-sightedness).
There are probably a s***-load of bugs (and different ones) in every micro
release MS has done in this year, you just have not yet heard (and probably
never will) of them. You'll get zero feedback/support from MS on any of the
issues related to these old micro-releases. Do you really propose to put
energy into that? This one turned out to be a bug apparently. Iff you'd
report bugs on the latest release (in MS parlance (nowadays) that means
preview versions, 15.8 P3), you'll be welcomed.
