It was more like, e2fslibsg removed e2fsprogs but didn't install
e2fsprogsg to replace it. I did some pouting about that on another
mailing list. I think the bottom line is, if you use Hamm you're
getting the latest features and the latest bugs, so you have to be
a bit of a gambler; it's usually fine, but there's no guarantee
that nobody uploaded a bad package today.
