That's certainly true. I just helped out a friend whose Debian Squeeze 
server was giving him grief. But I have little patience for recklessness. 
Debian Wheezy LTS ended more than a year ago, and ELTS ends in just over 
three months. It should not be supported.

Well, having finally got it running, and since, as you say, git head is 
second best...

Yeah, that's what it was built with, so no idea at this point. for 
reference, the scons string I used for both the 'bad' git build and the 
release build was:

scons timeservice=yes magic_hat=yes shm_export=yes gpsclock=yes 
nmea0183=yes fixed_port_speed=115200 fixed_stop_bits=1
