Thank you thank you thank you. This is the new prev/curr/exp behaviour I
asked for feedback on back in early december. Woohoo!

My concept is that upset gets told to fill in the gaps - so that
packages without a prev on disk, or in setup.ini get given the same
version twice in setup.ini - once as prev and once as curr.
Similar logic applies to test, except that a package with test, but no
curr or prev is only listed in test.

Very strange. I don't see the graphical issues. These may have been
fixed in CVS - can you try building locally. If you cannot try that than
I can put a new snapshot up.

I fixed a few fenceposts errors yesterday..
