You both are confused. The original table included

That's   4.3.48(2)-release   and    4.4.19(2)-release

Both are failing.

Note that 4.4.19 is newer than what is available in

The report is valid for present releases.
The bug is still present (since 4.3).

Please, do not waste our time in incorrect claims.

Do your homework and test !
