My head is spinning, but I think I got it.  I looked back at what I actually
did.  I did exactly as you said in your instructions.  The problem is that I
updated to .24.1-fixes, and overwrote some of my .24.1-fixes binaries with
your patch generated .24.0-fixes binaries.  Now I have a mixed bag of
.24.0-fixes and .24.1-fixes binaries.  Scary!

I made a couple mistakes:

First, I misunderstood your patch.  I thought I already had to be at
.24.x-fixes to apply the patch.  Your patch is not a binary patch, but
rather a source code patch.  It was quite obvious.  I don't know why I
missed that.

Second, I thought adding the updates repos would bring me to .24.0-fixes and
not .24.1-fixes.  I should have also known this when it asked me if I was to
keep up-to-date with .24.x or .25.

I am not sure the best course of action at this point.
