: its in the 4.0 CHANGES.txt, under the 3.2 section.

(sigh ... i tried to let this go, i swear i did...)

You're missing my point entirely.  yes it's in the 3.2 section but all 
that tells the user is that it was fixed on the 3x branch just prior to 
the 3.2 release -- that doesn't give users *any* info about wether that 
bug ever affected (or was fixed) on the completely and radically different 
4x branch.  There were multiple commits -- the bits are not the same.
