Depends on how fast Andras can fix this anyway.

The introduced 50ms "initializeTimer" was originally not set singleShot() but fixed so with commit 5fedc5ee921f87f320b5465edd80f74cabcfefcf only.
(likely bug #327190)

Therefore I guess the initial constantly fired timer shadowed the now present issues what basically means the actual changes have (unintendedly) never been really tested.

Patches strongly look like optimization (i guess: "this prevents an ugly recursion" would have been commented somewhere....) to me as well, so i'd relax, remove them for 4.12.0, this way get Andras enough time to inspect the patches and the *actual* behavior and re-add the correct patch for 4.12.1.

(Unless Andras already *has* a fixing patch, of course ;-)
