The version is from the git about 4 or 5 days ago : b8987158 (the ssl merge).
It is totally weird.  The only thing I can think of is that the local here is en_AU.  But no idea if that makes a difference.

Finally, I downloaded the actual bzip file from gambaswiki and decompressed it manually. Now I have help.  I get back 
to you in a couple of days if I find anything that may be causing this.

(Oh I also tried another login and even created a new user, but they still had the same result.)
