Comment (by arma):

 Comment written in parallel to teor's above comment:

 I pushed a {{{bug24898}}} branch that I think fixes everything.

 It's on master though, and we might want to backport this. I'm not sure
 how far back to backport it -- we could go back to maint-0.3.1 pretty
 easily (there's a conflict but it's just because of a comment), but going
 back to 0.2.9 would be quite tricky because #21406 went into 0.3.1.

 The question of whether to backport more depends on how much we want these
 fixes in 0.2.9 -- this one is a cornerstone of some of the DoS mitigations
 that might come next.
