That was me, and I am pretty sure that this diagnosis is right: it all  
fell to bits at the point it tried loading fasls from the new compiler

I now have an option to my update script to blow away the 4 concerned  
files and let SVN restore them if need be (though there hasn't been  
another version change since I had the trouble).
