The concept of a motherball is part of the design. I'm not saying it's
great, but it also affects other things besides this scaling. If you
want to change that you should talk about this with metaball
maintainers (Jiri and Ton), it's not something that should be done as
part of a bugfix.

The change broke working metaball + particle system setups here, which
is why I looked into it. Can you explain why it is unusable?
