No further beta tester feedback for way over a month now; I consider that good news.

Had a first look at this, and it seems like a bug to me. I'll investigate.

First analysis indicates that the use of cylindrical light sources plays a role in this.

Identified the underlying cause as a stupid bug messing up photon direction calculations for parallel light sources. Fixed with change #4934.
