The problem with using the 2.05 release for your example is that it is
not continuing to be maintained.

The question is what are the failure modes on 2.1.  If there aren't any,
you should upgrade to resolve the problem.  If there are, and they are
more severe, you should report them to be corrected, since 2.1 *is*
being maintained (in the form of the 2.2-current).
