Okay, I have identified the relevant commit to be da91490 [1].  Unfortunately, the diff to the TL 2016 version which is something like af172a8 [2] is huge.  I was not yet able to identify the change which fixed the bug.  Also I have no idea what to look out for.  So far I have just been looking for occurrences of setattr and the like.
