Okay, Mike#2 provided the build
I tested it, bug is gone.
So we have identified the two commits that introduced it.

1) Please remove them from the official tree for, as per your
previous offer to do so.

2) Please discuss the proper way to re-introduce them in a way that
doesn't influence startup time negatively with Alex and possibly Mihai.
Mihai seemed to have a few suggestions as to how to solve the issue - me
being anything but a C/C++ expert, I can't comment on their quality,
though my gut feeling is that he may be right - after all, he has proven
to be an able coder previously (Cowbytes and Endians ...).
