No, there has been discussion about whether different behavior
would be better in future major releases, but no consensus has been
but we wouldn't treat it as a back-patchable bug fix, because
it would almost certainly break things for somebody.
But it is not clear to me if you're willing to fix it for 9.2.3
for instance?
Back-patching means changing things in a minor release, where
things only change after the second dot. We don't make changes in
user-visible behavior like this in minor releases; so no, we would
not make a change like this in 9.2.3 or any other 9.2 version.
Ok, thanks for the explanation, Kevin.

I'm curious though. Why wouldn't this behavior be considered a bug? Is
there any link to previous discussions about this subject that I could read?
