Using LilyPond as a test case is a good idea, thanks!

That crash is not related to the work on replacing the berkeleydb based 
extension manager, but on the ongoing process of replacing neon with 
something different.

I'm working on fixing the crash and have to dig through the masses of 
code doing the update. Me being a simpleton would have implemented it 
with wget and some CRC and version checks, but that would apparently 
loose the many features people so admire from that very complex piece of 
update code...
