Argh.  I just noticed that the original report of #538060 in fact
explicitly said that gfxpayload didn't help.  I did not realise that
Francesco's mail was a follow-up to an existing bug, because in my
mailer it looked exactly like a new bug report!

Dear reportbug maintainer: I get confused by this quite often.  It would
be lovely if you could ensure that follow-ups to existing bugs sent
using reportbug *always* look different from new bug reports in some
very clear way.
