It was fixed as part of general cleanup in 4.2.5p75, however it was
not fixed in 4.2.4 until 4.2.4p7.  Changes to -stable are always then
pulled into -dev, even if, as in this case, the change was already
made in -dev.  That is required so the next -stable change will pull
cleanly into -dev.  Notice the -stable autogen version number commits
also are pulled into -dev, though the files in question have been "bk
rm"ed in -dev so the -stable version changes end up as deltas to
BitKeeper/deleted/* files in -dev.
