OK again, and thanks for the clarification. 

I still find it puzzling that a known bug which has been fixed is *not* included in the upgrade lists. 

Forgive my ignorance, but if it doesn't break anything, and is open/free, what exactly is the problem?
I hope there isn't some obscure political reason for this... ?

Lots of people still use floppies, for all kinds of reasons, so surely this is worth including as a bug-fix update?
