The "git bisect good" was probably too early. I'm still getting freezes,
so it's easy to say when a revision is "bad", but even five successful
resumes in a row are not enough to call it "good".

IOW: It takes some time for testing, and in the meantime, the accused
commit mentioned above isn't probably the culprit.

Sorry for not testing it enough in the first place.
