Sure, but why replace it with an 'only ""' implementation until you
write the code to return the correct value.  What harm was the current
code doing - it can't be any less correct than returning "" always.

What do you think the correct implementation should be, or should we
just ignore this as a artefact of a long forgotten part of the NT4
behaviour and leave with just "" as the safest thing?

Anyway, just to understand what happened last night:

My autobuild failed (for some reason I've not yet determined), but you
grabbed my proposed tree from my autobuild area, and successfully pushed
an autobuild including those?

That's quite fine, I just wanted to ensure I understood what happened.
