Yes, well, could you please humor me and copy/paste it? As mentioned
in the release notes, DISPLAY is now different in this version than it
was before. It should look something like:

Yes, that is not functioning properly in 2.4.1_alpha1 because of
CFBundleGetVersionNumber being so restrictive. I nuked that check
