Take it as a reminder: when reporting an error or problem, even if it
doesn't seem relevant, always provide version number. :-)

Mathematician: noun, someone who disavows certainty when their uncertainty
set is non-empty, even if that set has measure zero.
Hope: noun, that delusive spirit which escaped Pandora's jar and, with her

by Robert Graves)
