Right, well I think I have a handle on this oddity. It’s both trickier and simpler than I expected.

We (as in Pi Towers) built a new package with the 20160818 0858 vm. Yippee!

Oh pooh; install it and the bug is still there. Damn. How is this possible?

Binary diff all the vm files (such fun) and they’re all identical. But when the vm is in my working directory it is fine - in the /usr/lib/blah end-user location, bug. How is it possible?

Actually I’m going to stop there and see if anyone else spots what is happening, just for fun.
