Well actually, that was deliberate (I wrote that code). Basically, the
client sending "version" is wrong because what's being uploaded is not
that version at all. If anything "version" should be "old_version"+1
but that's even more confusing.

AIUI the server currently expects "old_version", or is that not true?
