Looks like Bruce just fixed these... I verified myself.

As to Bruce's "meta problem" of not having a backup person to handle 
uploading important items when Bruce is away... perhaps the box-admins 
could be backups?  (Which I think are Cees, Ken and possibly Goran.)  I 
assume the ftp.squeak.org machine is a "box" they have access to. :)

(In this case it was a little trickier because we also needed someone 
to build the windows package, and it's possible that none of the box 
admins are Windows squeakers... so it probably didn't get done because 
it wasn't easy for one person to do it all.)

Good question... I guess it's really up to Michael & whoever wants to 
be in charge of 3.8, which fixes should be added to 3.8.

I'd guess the number of items added to 3.8.1+ is pretty small compared 
with 3.9, it wouldn't make sense to keep the mantis items open just 
because they're not in 3.8 (but are in 3.9).
