  skalibs- is out.

  I don't typically announce just-bugfix releases, but this one is
important. It fixes a potentially crash-inducing and show-stopping
bug on non-Linux.

(I would have caught it during build tests if I had seen the compiler
warnings, but trying to tailor compiler options to only get relevant
warnings on non-Linux is both an arms race and a wild goose chase -
and you don't want to give a wild goose access to rocket launchers -
so non-Linux builds are usually flooded with random nonsensical
warnings, and I entirely ignore them. And this, folks, is why it is
important for compilers to be neither too terse nor too verbose and
for Unix distributions to provide sane compiler defaults.)


  More bug-reports welcome. Ideally earlier after a buggy release! :P
