In case you missed Terry's note: This dependency transpires to be due to a very recent addition addition to survival, which explains why we were never bitten by it in the past. And since M comes before s in most collations, it probably only affected parallel builds anyway. And even in that case, the outcome of race conditions is undetermined.
