Oh, I believe you.  Issue is that I did a svn update when I got home today.
I have another checkout that I never modify (to use as a reference checkout)
that I have not updated since rev. 43738 and it passes the tests.  That sure
helps narrow it down, doesn't it.  =)  A quick check of rev. 46750 has the
test passing as well.

Of course.

=)  On my slow machine, it might be another 15 years before we get to
current on HEAD.
