I choose the rebuild route, but it'll be low precedence on my todo list,
especially since my workaround is reliable enough for now.

Indeed, those may very well be the same problem.
IMO a good idea would be to post something about one of the bugs above anyway,
mentioning this Debian bug, so that:
a) they have more info about the problem;
b) the link between the three reports is documented;
c) my workaround can help more frustrated users.
So, no problem for me if you close this Debian bug, as upstream is aware of it.
