After I found your reply a bit puzzling at first, I think I understand
it now ;) I realize that I should add to my previous posting that I did
not mean to say that you should be expected to support vendor packages.
If it sounded like that, it wasn't my intention.

It's just that you said you didn't know what code is in there, which
implied that there could be arbitrary modifications, but this is not the
case, which is why I'm confident that the bug that Henri saw would occur
with a tarball from just as well. However, digging deeper in
my mailbox I just found a later mail from Henri and it looks as if the
problem disappeared in a later version (2.0.53). So it seems the problem
was solved already. (Sorry about the confusion. Still catching up.)
