I suspect the cause of this issue is rather simpler: most of the changes of 6e229c0e were correctly retained in the merge. But the other parent of the merge introduced a new line immediately preceeding the two lines removed in 6e229c0e (though the new line has since been commented out). Automatic conflict resolution would have failed, and in the manual conflict resolution presumably the lines were retained by accident.

I've re-removed the two lines in f8ca64a.

I may have found a sequence of git commands that might bring to this situation:


possible ?

As AC_CHECK_LIB(Xi, XInput_find_display) exists in master, this should be closed.

The line was preserved in merge commit 6e229c0e.

Parent commit 476deea83 has the line but the other parent commit d90badbc does not.

Yep, commit exists but its changes don't. For instance "AC_CHECK_LIB(Xi, XInput_find_display)" line removal.
What reintroduced such line which is on master now?

I do find commit f8c0f877 in my copy of the repo.
What do you mean by "vanished" ?

bjacques pointed a vanished commit out: f8c0f877

It seems it disappeared with cb661363 "huge merge to catch up with master..." by rsavoye.

We had already noticed another data loss, see bug #34313.
