That's what I thought, but I couldn't quickly locate a reference to that
event. I seem to recall a mailing list message to that event, but as I was
already running a later version it didn't quite register.

In the days before 5.3 or even 6.0 I could understand why people clung to
4.x. But now it seems like inviting trouble.
