The sole reason we released 8.2.6 and 8.1.11 was to fix bugs found in
8.2.5 and 8.1.10, which had fixes for bugs in the earlier releases, and
so on.  If you are not on one of the latest releases, you are running a
version with known bugs.

8.1.6 in particular fixed a nasty autovac bug, which is not present on
any 8.2.
