@ianlancetaylor requested issue #40803 to be considered for backport to the next 1.15 minor release.

@gopherbot Please open backport to 1.15.

This is a minor but unintended change in behavior in 1.15. We should restore the behavior seen in all earlier Go releases.

Approved per discussion in a release meeting. This is fixing an unintentional regression. Only 1.15 needs this backport.
