It was not clear 4 years ago whether there would be a 5.8.10 release.
Had there been one, this fix would have been in.*

Also, really, this ticket is "abandoned" rather than "resolved".

I hope that the RT upgrade will let us make that distinction.

* Actually, by the workflow that we're currently using, because we don't have
  a "pending release" status, this ticket would actually have been closed as
  "resolved" as soon as the bug fix was committed, even though it never got
  released. That's also something we should change.
