Zsolt: an excellent idea! That shouldn't change the semantics of the function, and therefore is strictly a bug fix. Which means we could potentially backport it, yes?
Obviously we only need to change it between string / list if we're going to have this problem, and that only happens when there are parameters. So the change could be very narrow in scope. Lovely!
R. David: Why did you remove Python 2.7 from the list? We see the behavior there too.
