Issue #11454 was a regression in upcoming 4.5 version this was fixed for the release candidate. Issue #11461 was tricky to fix, however only affected the apple users.

Development of Drizzle has been abandoned for years and hence support for Drizzle will be removed from version 4.6. Most of the development work of issue #6297 was carried out during earlier weeks. However, it was during this period the pull request got merged.
