That's what should work. But it doesnt. There is a false old version in
the port on the server. This is apparently a known issue as there are
two (2) PR's with this issue reported in the last few days.
If someone on our list knows the maintainer I think it could be
corrected easily. It may be an upgrade that failed to take as the two
versions are 2004 and 2007 is what I think should be there now.
