Rowland, we've no time for a separate test on the rc but we do have a 
git master in a VM. We maybe able to pull that and see if it pulls 
IYSWIM. Can anyone confirm that what's in Master corresponds in anyway 
with the rc?

Whilst we're here, has anyone tested the sysvol replication or DC 
demote. O sea, is there a list of what there is in the rc to test against?
