(Maybe I'm just tooting my own horn with this post but I'll go ahead
and post it anyway, just in case it turns out to be informative and
not egotistical.)

I saw the changelog entries at the time, but they were terse enough that
I didn't quite pick up on the consequences. Later, I stumbled upon the
new behavior. I was going to report it as a bug, but I browsed through
Bugzilla first and found bug 131766:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=131766

Since it sounded like an intentional change and it was very late in the
dev cycle by the time I fully realized what was going on, I decided to
focus on getting it documented rather than changed. Therefore, I filed
bug 137033:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=137033

And that's how the change got documented in the release notes in the
first place...
