I'm going to pass on the latest version, beta.3 , because it doesn't 
include the stack fix (#235) which I can't work around, and it doesn't 
include the "." fix, which I *could* work around.
origin/release/v3.7.1 looks tempting though...

Tagged the wrong branch.
Try again now.

(Sheesh, why do you folks always have to look just when I'm busy making
a mistake... 30 minutes later, and nobody would have noticed my blunder...)

I gathered by the commit dates that that was not what you wanted. "I'll 
just tag this 2 week old branch/commit instead of the one that has the 
fixes and stuff I just committed"

Weird that my local git repo refused to move that tag.  But this worked:

rm -rf povray && git clone https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray.git && cd 
povray && git checkout v3.7.1-beta.3 && cd unix && ./prebuild.sh && cd 
.. && ./configure COMPILED_BY="Dick Balaska <dic### [at] buckosoftcom>" && 
make && cp unix/povray ~/bin/povray371.beta.3

It passes my smoke tests on Windows and Linux.  I will let it go live on 
my farm tomorrow when I can keep an eye on it for a bit. (Between 40 
minutes to 2 hours before it kicks in and if it goes south, it takes a 
minute to create 1000s of bad frames that may be painful to remove.)

I guess in the Git world there technically isn't such a thing as moving
a tag, and Git seems to refuse to automatically ditch a local tag in
favour of a remote tag of the same name.

Deleting the tag from your local repo and then fetching all tags again
should also have worked.
