Naturally. But see [1] for another case where this is a problem. It
looks bad. We have two choices:

1) Hold up the release while we work on a fix and run some emergency tests.
2) Release as-is, then quickly roll a point release.

The fact that two people have reported the issue separately gives me pause.
