space. Since _packageversion::Name is a virtual function, I suspect that
something that isn't really a packageversion has gotten into the vector in
packagemeta::ScanDownloadedFiles, and it's being masked by the
Or perhaps that "__result may be used uninitialised" warning in the stl
stuff is for real after all, and the iterator is actually returning an
