Sounds promissing.

This should be done by the attached patch. Andrash, could you please
give it a try? Is it OK for you to push it?

I am slightly scared by resetting the buildid to 0. Well, I think that
it was used only for the windows installer and also as release number
for linux packages. They both should have the version 3.5.3 that is
higher than 3.5.2 and it should work fine.
