26 I read in a bug report that this is fixed in a overlay.  Makes me wonder
27 why this has been going on for a month or so without a 'in tree' fix. 
28 I'd rather not add a overlay but if it is the only fix, may have too. 
30 I might add, Seamonkey and Firefox seem to work fine with both versions
31 of rust.  The biggest problem is when both Seamonkey and Firefox want to
32 upgrade at the same time.  That creates a major clash.  Usually, I
33 upgrade Seamonkey first, let it downgrade rust, then upgrade Firefox
34 which pulls in the newer rust.  Both seems happy until I do my weekly
35 updates again. 
37 If no one else comes up with a better solution, I may try the overlay. 
38 I think it is poly.c or something. 
40 Thanks.
