That would be quite strange, since the bug was (I think) introduced in
2.2.x on 2008-11-14, and the fix has not been merged to 2.2.5.

In general, going from 2.2.5 to 2.2.4 would be considered a downgrade
rather than an upgrade (although 2.2.4 was released after 2009-03-06
and a security fix was merged into 2.2.4 after that date). No changes
related to findfirst/findnext were done anymore though.
