I've tried reverting out 7258 and 7257 and it seems to break things
for me. I even tried reverting out 7256 also to no effect. Also while
you report that reverting to 7257 helps, Daniel Danner reports that
both 7257 and 7247 are broken for him.
I'm working on #339, simplifying the tuning process. Since there
doesn't seem to be any clear cause to these latest tuning problems,
I'm going to need to ignore them to concentrate on this task. It
will hopefully make fixing future tuning problems a bit simpler.
