Might this affect the check workflows for pull requests on the main 
mythtv repo? For https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/pull/821, the macos-13 
builds started mysteriously failing when I pushed new versions, although 
the changes were just reordering two boolean arguments to a function, 
and no other builds failed.
