I see. If you compile with v5.2.1 first, then it puts files immediately
in "compiled", and those will be found by v6.1.
If you compile v6.1 first, then the files go in a subdirectory of
"compiled", and they won't interfere with v5.2.1, while v6.1 will
continue to find the files in the subdirectory. That's what I tried, so
I didn't think of the problem with the other order.
Were you able to solve this by compiling with v6.1 first? Or some other
