Look at the date. This is Ubuntu's updated 2.7.3. It really should be
'184.108.40.206' or '2.7.3b' or '2.7.3-ubuntu' or '2.7.3 -- 2012 Sep 6 update'
or even '2.7.4a0'.

which will be in 2.7.4 for everyone else.

Ubuntu considers getting fixes to people early a feature, not a 'leak'.

Notice the date again -- the original release date of 2.7.3.
