	Heh - so, I'd be inclined to recommend installing the packages, and
then moving the results away to somewhere else - that may turn out to be
rather more reliable [but will break system integration no doubt].

	Clearly something changed ;-) but working out what it is is not so easy
of course, and would require lots of work. Of course, if you could pin
down an exact time-range in which it broke: then we would have a subset
of commits to read - but all of that belongs in a big report ideally.
