This is suspicious-making, but it could be perfectly right.  For
example in, fdo#58035 "CRASH segfault from invalid SQL statement"
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=58035#c1> and fdo#47209
"In SQL mode in Queries, Base crashes when a second SELECT followed by
quotes is entered."
<https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=47209> the difference
between crashing or not depends on whether you are using a debug or
non-debug build.  I say "seems" because the meaning of "master"
is--shall we say?--somewhat volatile.

Perhaps "latest known-working version".  This would let one update the
field without knowing what versions in between do.
