That was a mistake, the patch (the sun shell fix) was supposed to go
into the branch, but the commit failed because my local copy was not the
latest version, and i didn't noticed it. So this got committed when i
created the tag (tag was created only when the tarball was final). The
tarball was created from the branch, and so it misses that patch :(

My original idea was to commit security fixes for the current release
to the branch, and then tag again from it.
I don't think there will ever be a pre8try2 now, but i'd prefer to keep
the branches.
