Emacs doesn't use high-numbered "minor" versions for pretests.

It uses high-numbered "minor-minor" numbers (which I think is a good
idea), but the "minor" number of the pretest is plain wrong!

The pretest  has the same minor number as the previous release, so
code cannot test emacs-minor-version for any practical purpose.

[The current CVS has emacs-minor-version == 3, although we all
expect the next release to be 21.4].

I don't know any code which breaks because of this though.
