does someone happen to know in which released kernel version this bug
got introduced?

Was it always there since remounting of bind mounts was possible?

according to debian this at least affects 2.6.32 kernels
in oldstable:

Sadly I can't find any other public available bugtracker
from redhat, gentoo etc. who track these.
