Thomas, it is my understanding that this is how it should work? That is, 
downgrades should not be handled automatically in Cauldron. In the stable 
release, you'd increase the epoch. In Cauldron, everyone affected has to 
handle this manually as there we don't want to increase the epoch (which 
would eventually trickle down into stable, and we want to avoid using an 
epoch unless absolutely necessary).

Just one of the downsides of running the development version on your 
machine as I understand it.
