Hmmm not sure why people can't reproduce, unless it's a new bug in Darwin, because it's definitely a bug in Darwin. I added the details to the ticket.
I don't know the approach to patching such things. Does prefix maintain patches for OS bug workarounds? I know there are patches. Including this kind of thing?
