Yes it was the downgrading that I complained for.
Several days ago it would have updated to 0.8.9 and now to 
0.8.5 that's just not logical.
And I think this shouldn't belong to users forum IMHO because
users can do nothing about such situations while developers and ebuild
commiters can.'Do not upgrade than' sounds a la MS's 'don't do that
even if it would be the logical thing to do.Stupeed user '

:)
