Thankfully this problem has now been communicated to Linus himself, and
he agreed that it should be fixed in the kernel. See the following long
threads on the LKML:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1255125
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel/1256405

I will keep an eye on this bug and send an update when a fix appears in
Linus' tree that I can test.

Cheers,
Sven
