Right, that's where the package was installed. I had a look at the
source at the time, and that's where I found it.

I get this now, but that's after all the steps from my previous email,
which involved manually unlining and reinstalling the package:

     Package               Checksum                                    Source
     graph                 5c769639e02fac538b1034a311ea787627b8a7f6    (catalog graph)
