I confirm that your smaller recipe also triggers it, but the original
situation I had - prior to making the recipe - had been arrived at
with the following steps:

        check out many source files which all already had properties
        rename *some* of the files
        delete wc
        upgrade to 5033
        retrieve wc

and at this point the files which I had *not* moved contained the
correct keyword expansion, but those that I had moved had lost it.

I don't know if that is relevant.

I don't mind doing that. I guess I have to create an account ...
