None now, they just bumped to HS15...
So we either stick with the last HS14 changeset (around b45 of 7) or
track 7.  I would prefer to track 7, but obviously this is more
unstable.  However, there seems to be no effort to backport bug fixes
to previous HS releases.

Thanks for the fix.  It was right to begin with and got screwed when I
reapplied the patch to commit :(
