Yes I did see that, but to be honest I thought I was more likely to be
at fault than the image forks I was playing with (and I didn't have
internet access to try >= 3.9 image at the time) !    Since the 3.8
forks have become as mainstream as 'mainstream' then a footnote where
the dependency arises will be a nice extra touch.

On the other hand, the issue shows a real, if small, benefit of a
production fork tracking mainstream where compatible.

I was under the impression that Marcus's changeset was likely to be an
adequate patch.
However, I will try it against the OLPC and Croquet images on my
desktop and report back.

I will need to read more of SBE to learn not to use 'diff' and 'patch' :)
