Ah, thanks for this analysis. I can confirm that's what's happening on
an upgrade.

Sounds like we need to consider various previous versions and test
multiple upgrade paths. I don't currently have the time to pursue this.

I'm inclined to revert that change and reduce 1.0-6 to just the

file layout change later on.
