Well, the patch does fix the bug I reported (at the posting at the top
of the thread).  It has no effect on #882 or #732.  Hardly surprising
since the proposed patch for #807 touches _only_ the bracket code, and
#882 and #732 don't involve brackets.

Since _all_ of them involve centered columns and their dimensions, I
can't rule out that the proposed patch has been made to work just by

BUT the braces before _and_ after patch _properly_ enclose the centered
column.  So my guess is that brace calculations are _impervious_ to the
bug in #882/#732 (since the braces properly enclose their _contents_ in
all the tested cases, either before or after the #807 patch), and the
patch only affects the _outside_ of the braces, making them apparently
occupy the right amount of space.

So from my testing the patch is unrelated to #882/#732, and the bug in
#882/#732 does not apparently affect the test case for #807 either which
