Hmm, could be. They got rebuilt on my system and committted at some point in the 2.6.1 run-in. and that system has 1.5.0. I did check that things still worked, but I didn't think the version would matter. The actual Java code is unchanged, so you could copy the .class files over from 2.6.0 (& let us know if it works)
