ok, I happened to be awake when this regression run started and right after
it had copies all the files to the install directory, I manually edited
range\config.hpp and switched the comment chars (//) from the "new" line to
the "old" line.

let's see what shows up in a couple hours.

I should be awake before the next run completes, so I should be able to
"save" the current uploads.
