I think you are the first person I've seen report something like this.

Up until now we've still been recommending backhair I believe (at least for
English-speaking jurisdictions).  However, it sounds like that either needs
to be re-evaluated, or perhaps backhair may need some updates.  It has been
a stable file with no changes now for a very long time because it just sits
there and works.  Maybe it needs some changes now...
