I'm not a developer, I'm a user. I'm now going to uninstall 7.4 and revert to 7.3 again as I know that works.

This has been corrected. Available if a 7.4.7 release rolls, or shift now to 7.5.2 or later release.

Those are not what I was referring to. I am not a developer, so I could be wrong about this.

I think that it was supposed to be:

...with the text:
account for initial vertical offset when toggled into multiline

...aiming at LO 7.4.

But instead of ending with:
 Code-Review +2
 Change has been successfully cherry-picked as 

...that one ends with:
 Verified +1
 Build Successful

...and there was never a corresponding automatic comment in bug 153784 for LO 7.4.

This is why I keep asking.

If you expand the comments, Caolán has it on hold with his own -1

"let this bed down in master/7-5 for a while" and again with "wait until most recent changes have bedded down" a week later. 

If master against 7.6, and releases test good, there will be a +2 for it to roll into a TDF (or vendor's LTS) 7.4.7 release.

Fair enough, but it is already queued for bug 153784
