No, it turns out that there is no bug remaining, except for the limited
resolution of the time stamps.  If I put (SLEEP 2) between loading and
writing the new version.lisp-expr file, all is well.  I will tidy up a
little and push my patch.

It seems inelegant, and also I'm not very confident in how I apportioned
functions to the different ASDF component files/packages.  I don't
richly understand the dependency structure laid out in asdf.asd, so
there was a little trial and error involved in code placement.
