Reminds me of the other awkward behaviour I once hit where a package
depends on something that is slotted, and mysteriously uses a middle
version of the things that are slotted, and then breaks with that
version that it for some mysterious reason found a preference for, and
upon removing that particular version of the slot, it uses the most
recent slotted version instead, and then works perfectly.
