Great, glad you are working on it.

Graeme, the packages need nuking while you debug the problem.

You're right it is just "unfortunate" if a package gets autobuilt that
takes a crap on the device and this will happen from time to time.

But it is OUR FAULT if we leave it up there to keep crapping on as many
devices as possible once we know about it.
