When I first encountered this patch in Xiphos I tested with BibleTime and
The Sword Project for Windows and both of them do crash under these

Yes, other toolkits such as Qt do have wrappers for this shortcoming
already, but none of the other front ends I've worked with have bothered to
put in the effort to produce a patched version of Sword to fix the crash.
