I added a little to the discussion in the bug, in particular:

In the bug report, Cyrille made an experiment with a perfect angular line to
test if the soft brush was working appropriately. An artifact was clearly
visible in the corner, but the color sample tool revealed it was just ok. I
think that effect could be due to Mach bands:

Or to the many different optical adjustments occurring either at the retinal
ganglion level, the brain, or somewhere in between, that cause optical
illusions... (i.e.: even we have bugs).
