If you reset to this commit, you'll appear somewhere in the master
branch. Are you sure this is what you want? This would then explain
why your version after build was 4.3. It seems you've picked the wrong
sha1 of the commit.
Also, note that when a commit is pushed to several branches, each its
instance will have its own unique hash. Thus, you should check, which
of all these sha1 sums you really want to switch to. (Although this
one doesn't have copies of its commit message as I've searched.)
