GC bug with card marking

There was a GC bug around card marking that was marked as fixed in
6u19(b02) which we have hit a couple of times [1]. This is not listed in
the release notes [2] which was raised on one of the boards [3].

I know that there were some other fixes that may have caused 6u19(b02) to
be pushed out slightly early which is why I too am wondering if this was
actually fixed in 6u19 or if it is being deferred to 6u20.

Thanks in advance for any help.
