That commit is another example of a commit that introduced a regression
while fixing another regression in another app.  This does not prove that
commit wrong, however, the burden is now on you (us) to prove it in order to change git.

It's not an impossible task.  Even code that seemed to be backed by
tests in Wine was changed when the tests were proven wrong/incomplete.

For a start, it may be worth testing that other app and see
if it still needs that commit in current Wine.  Does anybody know the
bug number of that other app's original issue?
Finally, are there any tests that support either behavior?
