First, 1.5beta2 is really old. If you're going to test the beta code,

compressOld.php may or may not work at present even in the current code,

This indicates that a HistoryBlubStub has incorrectly referenced another

Possibly caused by the fatal errors and old structure assumptions in
compressOld.inc, which should not be used at this time.
