Thanks, I actually didn't even dig deeper once I saw that this commit
was fixing the exact same error.

I understand, but note that there are a couple of other patches in
that bump that also fix some other possible build issues (although the
titles aren't very useful):
e05cc55 fix build error when gcc over 7.0
7c7562b fix build error

So really a version bump seemed like the easy route instead of
backporting all those patches.
But I understand it isn't ideal at this stage of the 2018.11 release.
