Yes you are correct. But the changes in the code from v.1 to v.2 seem  
minimal and I can see NO reason why there should be a conflict in v.2  
and not v.1. We are setting some lengths and then feeding them values  
in v.2 where as in v.1 we don't set some lengths but feed the values  
in directly. Am I misunderstanding the changes to these particular  
commands? For now the easiest thing for me is to use the old code  
that works.

I update the folder for students once a year when the TeX install is  
updated. In this way everything matches and they don't upgrade their  
TeX install during the year.

The mathematician may be compared to a designer of garments, who is  
utterly oblivious of the creatures whom his garments may fit. To be  
sure, his art originated in the necessity for clothing such  
creatures, but this was long ago; to this day a shape will  
occasionally appear which will fit into the garment as if the garment  
had been made for it. Then there is no end of surprise and delight.
