Since this issue seems to present in -CURRENT since long, I think the easiest
for me would be to find first when the issue appeared...
I compiled -CURRENT dating from 02/01, the problem was already present.
-CURRENT dating from 01/15 and 01/01 did not compile, lacking some headers
related to vinum.
I guess I will have to use snapshots... With some luck I will be able to tell
you in a couple of days when the issue appeared, with an acceptable precision.
