Why is it provided as the version for testing before the release of 
1.3.1 then? Will the tarball be updated with the correct files?

Well, in my case, I have currently to use Windows for Internet since I 
had to remove the ISDN card from my PC after a hardware update and use 
the device of the phone company instead - with no Linux drivers in 
sight. I have tried a half dozen cvs clients for Win and all of them 
seem to convert Unix line feeds to DOS or do other odd things. I haven't 
been able to build *any* cvs checkout done under Win. So I have to use 
the tarballs instead.
