Can you send a patch to vercmptest.sh and show us the difference
before and after?

Either way, I'm not convinced there is a right answer to what is
greater and lesser, but it does warrent looking into as the behavior
changed. I did see some comments in the new code alluding to some
upstream changes that may have been related to version numbers similar
to this.
