Yeah, I couldn't figure out what the issue was either.  I used PMR to
merge it (unless there is some other instance of it sitting out there
someone else is running).  But it merged clean according to PMR.
There was no mention of conflicts or anything like that during the
merge and push to trunk.

I asked about it in the ce-certification-qa channel, but it was after
EOD for most of the team.
