Sorry about the delay in replying.

Thanks for the test case. I can reproduce the same.

Hmm, 0005-Refactor-optimizer-s-inheritance-set-expansion-code-5.patch is
certainly to be blamed here; if I revert the patch, the problem goes away.

Based on 2 above, I attempted to add logic for AppendPath in
reparameterize_path() as in the attached. It fixes the reported problem
and does not break any regression tests. If it's sane to do things this
way, I will incorporate the attached into patch 0005 mentioned above.
