Fair enough. More conclusive then is Brian's finding that many of the
occurrences were on fresh installs.

The table greys out those errors that have not been reported in the
latest package version. Conversely, you can change "all installed
versions" to just the most recent version, to list just those four
errors you're referring to.

Be careful, though: neither of those is definitive if the latest
package version is very new. Maybe a problem still exists, but not
enough people have updated to the latest version, and spent enough
time using it, for anyone to encounter the problem in that version yet.
