Yes, it would seem so. Though it may not be very helpful in lots of
situations (because people only discover the problem after they
out-waited a merge of several hours). Still, it's useful information
to work around it (maybe people can detect the problem in some wrapper
scripts, ahead of merging), so maybe you should add it to the issue
