My guess is the errors/warnings reported in the bug report will reappear because whatever was the true cause of those messages was not really fixed with that patch. I think this one of those moments when one problem masked another. Therefore reverting that one patch in 3.5.13 without the other unknown fixes is likely to resurrect those messages. > > I'm guessing something else changed along side of or after that one patch that actually resolved the messages. > > Possibly browsing through the Commit Patches web page might reveal possible candidates.
