No. I checked and the reference and definition are both unversioned.
I did find however that I spoke too soon about this problem not being
fixed in the mainline sources. It seems that somehow the bug is fixed.
I am currently checking to make sure that this is correct and not just
me mucking up the testing again, but using a VM makes the whole process
Thanks very much for taking a look at the problem though.
