Sorry, not possible. 3.2.x was introduced here when upgrading from Suse
10.0 to OpenSuse 11.0. OpenSuse 11 comes with 3.2.0, I think, but when
we went to production use, we already had installed 3.2.4. That was 2
The "(maybe earlier, but I doubt it)" in my original post makes no sense
as we did not test it with any earlier version than 3.2.4.
I found some possibly discussion at
