No, it doesn't.

The fix for that bug report has been merged back however, as mentioned  
in the bug report's history.

I don't know what's up with the Windows snapshots. The 2.3.1 one  
hasn't been updated at all in ages, and apparently the 2.2.1 one isn't  
properly updated either. It is probably indeed revision 8445, which  
would explain why that fix isn't in the binary you downloaded.
