Critical issue when upgrading to 4.7.2

Hi guys

As was pointed out in this forum thread there seems to be an issue when upgrading to 4.7.2 from a previous version. I do not know what the problem really is nor which versions are actually affected. What I do know is that I was able to reproduce the issue on my local machine while upgrading from 4.6.2 to 4.7.2

I would strongly suggest to not attempt an upgrade to a recent version (including post 5.0.0) until I have more details and understanding of the issue.

I do apologize for the inconvenience and I will keep you posted.

Just noting we upgraded, many months ago, from 4.4.0 to 4.7.2 with no issues.

To close the loop on this issue, I described what most likely happened and what I did to address the issue in the future (fixed in 4.7.3 and 5.5.1) (https://github.com/pongasoft/glu/issues/262#issuecomment-40970353). 

I am not surprised that you did not encounter the issue when you upgraded as it requires a combination of factors.
