That commit's shows version - so that
then is expected.
The commit wasn't selected from 4-2 branch

Looking at that commit's date (4 days ago) also confirms this.
is from end of april 2014, not from october 2013.

So remember that LO just passes control to running instance, so when
you have 4.3 alpha+ running, and then launch 4.2 dev, it will still
just reuse 4.3
