Yes, silver2 has two versions of one in 'src/hyper/pages/'
and the second one in 'src/share/doc/hypertex/pages/'.  As of
patch 50 silver2 installed version form 'src/share/doc/hypertex/pages/'.
I did not check, but I suspect that patch 49 intalled from
'src/hyper/pages/'. build-improvenemts and w-sandbox have only one
version, but picked the one installed by silver2...

You are invited to check wh-sandbox, but ultimatly you must decide which
versions work for you...  FYI wh-sandbox now corrected this problem with

Well, if you want to run Axiom only installed version matters.  But
I think that this case nicely illustrate problems with unused code
-- after seemingly unrelated change the code may get used and
produce wrong results.
