Sure, I read the changelog before composing my previous email. My point
remains: when I do a QA upload, I take what's currently in unstable. The
only possibility, (and it's quite possible, given that I appear to have
uploaded this package twice) is I downloaded what was in unstable at some
point between you making your upload and me making mine.
If this is the case, then I am entirely at fault, and need to stop working
in a vacuum, and apologise profusely.
Sorry, Andrew. I didn't mean to imply that you had reverted the
changes intentionally. I only meant to point out that that was the
effect, when Martin was wondering why the bug reappeared. There
appears to have been some sort of race condition here. Although, if we
had both used -2 as a starting point and both uploaded a -3, I don't
see how this would not have been caught by the FTP masters, and how it
would have resulted in a -4 version.
My best guess is that your -3 upload was rejected (due to -3 already
exisiting in the archive) which caused you to upload -4 some time
later. You started with -3 (which you didn't realise was your rejected
-3 and not my -3) made your -4 changes, and uploaded it.
