The strange part is that it uses the working text and the base props. If it
did was entirely one way or the other (either base text/props or working
text/props), I'd say it wasn't an issue. But the fact that it's mixed, makes
me want to treat this like a bug.

I'm not sure I understand the working copy thing either, or than you can avoid
having to touch the server again to generate a clean base from which to
package your product.
