Yes, I'm seeing this too.  But it's not the same problem at all.

I'm pretty sure that I introduced it when I converted from manual version number
bumps in configure.ac to using git-version-gen, which of course bumps the 
file version number every time you pull, commit, or edit a file for the first 
in a clean tree...

The problem then, is that the tests/*demo*/*/ltversion.m4 and ltmain.sh are not
regenerated without a full bootstrap (thank goodness!! That takes ages, and I'd
hate to have to wait for it as I'm bouncing around the various branches in my
local libtool repo).

I wouldn't worry about it too much.  I have begun migrating the legacy tests to
Autotest, which is not only more pleasant to work with, but saves the boring 
for all the legacy configury to be built every time we run make dist or 
by the time I've flushed my current patch queue, we won't have all that cruft to
deal with.
