I appreciate it, Brian. Slight issue: after installing the patch, rosmaking
stage and attempting to run the .world with a pioneer, it's triggering the
same error as before. The error itself refers to a piece of code that
should have been erased by the patch. I've pre-cleaned it, tried different
approaches to rosmake, and gone through the code to make sure its
compilable. Any idea as to what might be the problem?
