Hi Aron,

I have merged your patch in the Buster branch, however, the current plan
is to get version 19.3 in Buster as a replacement. Therefore, it makes
little sense right now to ask the release team about this patch, when
we've already asked for approval of version 19.3. FYI, your patch is
already included in version 19.3. Maybe you could test with the version
in Sid?
