Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

There is no SLES 8.1; there's just SLES8.

That isn't the version supplied with the OS. No way. SLES8 is frozen at
the 0.6 branch, and I think the latest version we made available to
clients and customers in the last updates for SLES8 was 0.6.13.

You must have manually installed a different version. Please do not lie
about such, it makes debugging impossible.
