You're kind of right even though the patch solved the immediate problem in some situations.

I've submitted a rewrite of this module since it has been patched multiple times over the last 20 years without any overall plan, and it no longer works as intended. At least this makes it easier to change which parameters to include to provide uniqueness.


Maybe this this bug report is a won't-fix anyway at least for now.

Best regards
