v3.7 renders the bottom version too.
My vague recollection is that some time during v3.71->v3.8 development a
typo was introduced somewhere in the class set up for the spiral 1 & 2
patterns. We ended up with two spiral1(s) or two spiral2(s) instead of
one of each - or something similar to that. Likely in pattern.h or
pattern.cpp or both.
I thought I'd mentioned it somewhere out here in the news groups, but
looks like I did not add the fix to any of my commit messages - so maybe
not. I was just something I saw while working on other issues.
I'm fighting a northern hemisphere cold/flu/bug at the moment so I don't
feel like doing any more rooting around.
