According to shibd -version, it's 2.5.3 installed (early in the year, from memory). But before the updates released in June.

If I have to, I'll uninstall and reinstall - but would rather just run the patch.

AFAIK, that happens if the versions involved are actually identical, or if the version installed is pre-2.5.

I guess it could also happen if it's an older copy installed on a newer one. I'd have to run specific tests to remember.
