Every other LAMESPEC we fix, this is no different.

That person's code will not work on the MSFT runtime, so they had a bug

Let's just recap the facts:

 - This is a bug that has manifested itself in similar cases before. These
were not tests for pendantic correctness, but real life bugs filed by
 - The patch is trivial
 - Any app it breaks would not run on the msft runtime anyways.

So the solution should be obvious, put in the patch.
