The global ambient_light is silently ignored if the #version is 3.8

I used the Basic Scene 01 - Checkered Plane template
and added a Wire_Box.  Then at the top changed these 3 lines:

#version 3.8;
global_settings{ assumed_gamma 1.7 ambient_light 5.0}
//#default{ finish{ ambient 0.1 diffuse 0.9 }}

If the version is 3.7, then that ambient_light 5.0 washes everything 
right out.  If the version is 3.8, it matters not what I set that number to.

So I tried

global_settings{ assumed_gamma 1.7 }
#default{ finish{ ambient 0.1 }}

This does look a lot like the effect I want, after a couple of tests on 
my movie.  However, I am greeted with a plethora of:

Parse Warning: Scene language version changed after a 'default' 
statement. The changes in defaults normally associated with the language 
version change are not applied.

because the standard includes push the version, change to 3.5, pop the 
version.

sigh.
