fatal: object fde075cb72fc0773d8e8ca93d55a35d77bb6688b changed type!?
Without the =, it works fine; with a string that has both
"%(objecttype)" and "%(objectsize)", it's fine; but when you don't
include both, it complains about one of the values that you did not
mention having changed.
jrnieder fingered v1.8.4-rc0~7^2~15 as the (likely?) culprit here.
