2.4.43 introduced new bugs and those were continued in 2.4.44.  I think 
it's important that the regressions are addressed before 2.4.45 is 
released. In addition, this very bug report indicates a regression between 
2.4.44 and what's currently scheduled for 2.4.45, which is further 
reasoning not to release 2.4.45 at this time.
