The operating word is "irrelevant" meaning inconsequential, not
affecting, no impact. Please see the bug report I linked to, it
discusses this problem. Previously it was irrelevant whether page_size
was set to 99999 or 0 for GtkSpinButtons, now it matters => breakage.

That accessing the struct attributes in GtkAdjustment is broken needs
to be spelled out more clearly. The documentation does not say that it
is wrong.
