Apparently so, yes.

Ok, I can reproduce the issue indeed.

I'll have a look.

The goal is to fix issues, not to work around them, so we need to keep
the atk bridge enabled by default, otherwise we won't even know about
the bugs, and thus never manage to enable it by default... I'm glad that
this particular bug does not make the application crash, at least.

The issues that were reported in the past *are* fixed by 0.33.3-6, so
#813143 shouldn't be reopened.
820227 is another issue, apparently related to an entirely different
codepath than the previously-reported issues.

Please don't do it this way: the information which is needed to fix the
bug is in #820227, so it's a reassign which makes sense, which I've just
