Now guides work for all versions including
1.5.1 20167 on any new sla file but it still
doesn't work on a particular sla file I built
with some edition of 1.5.1 in the last week or
two. Which version I don't know. 

So now my problem is, how do I purify this
particular .sla file? If I can't then I'll
just live without guides for this file. 

I know, I shouldn't be using 1.5.1 at all but I
am a bad boy in this respect. I was trying to
compile 1.5.0 using Jlucs script but got 1.5.1
instead. So I used it.
