Ulrike -

Thanks muchly.  That patch makes things work as expected on my TL2019 install, which is certainly a relief!

Will there be harms from making that patch on later releases of hyperref?  Or is it a mere redundancy?

To that end, what is the hyperref package version/date I can test against above which the patch is unnecessary?  The reason is because my LaTeX code is actually being generated automatically by another program, so I have to be as robust/nuanced about applying patches as possible.  My understanding is that I would have to use a construction like:

    % Patch is unnecessary
    % Patch code here

What date should one use?
