This is not a regression, just a case where user would prefer a different solution to the saddle-point corner with 3 of 4 edges selected.
I suppose the desired solution is to treat the main horizontal flow as a "pipe" and join straight across at the middle instead of forming a slightly convex bulge.
I can only see how to do this by adding another special case. It is tricky to do so because have to check that the special case doesn't mess up other things.

For now, moving this to lower priority; other regression bugs come ahead of this.

Note to self: to recreate this without modifier, note that the Angle constraint causes the top (flat) edge to be deselected from bevel.

@Howard Trickey (howardt), We're currently trying to be pretty strict regarding bug vs. todo so if this is a corner case that needs special attention, we should really move this to the todo. It doesn't make much sense to keep this in our tracker when it's actually not on track ;)

Moving to TODO.
