Back at the start of June of this year, I wrote:

There were no answers and I shrugged, found that amcheck did the right
thing and decided to leave it alone and have another look when 2.2.20 came
Since then there have been a handful of mails asking me if I found or was
told of a solution.
No. No luck as yet, so for the sake of those who find these mails via
Google and the like, I don't have an answer for you. Sorry.
Paul (speaking to prosperity)
