That's probably a result of using only the latest package in the
release-2 area when creating the union fs.  They should be fixed by
either making all the test versions curr, or by copying the curr
versions over from release to release-2.  Can you do that at one
point, Volker?  I need some time for debugging now.

That's really weird.  I have a few doubts about the reliability of the
union fs.  Anyway, I copied gdb-6.8-2 over now.
