The problem is with the VERSION variable in jhalfs. We used to have only one
line with "subtitle" in bookinfo.xml, but now with have two (one for each
revision). And it needs some bash/sed/grep skill to extract only one version...

It is getting late here, and I'll try to work on it tomorrow, unless you beat
me on this.
