Could you elaborate? Are you saying he was running an old version of trunk before the update, or that he is running the current version of trunk now? Why does this error occur, and is it something that's going to happen for some stable-to-stable updates in the future, or is it only a problem with trunk that will be (or was) fixed before release?
