We get a fair amount of such issues sent to us, I provide a fair amount of
suggested solutions to such issues. When I don't get enough feedback or if
nobody reminds me, it happens that I forget them or just leave them behind
(due to lack of interest from others than me for example) as I move on. I
don't recall how this particular issue turned out to not get merged.

Given a quick glance, I would say the latter. But then as you say you can't
repeat the problem it might also explain why nobody else has reported this to
be a problem...
