[aprssig] DIGI 8.3 WIDE1-1 bug?

Panic?  KPC-3+ digi Bug?

I just noticed today that my 8.3 DIGI is not forwarding WIDE1-1
packets correctly!  Am I confused?  It's a busy day... But...

I send this packet:

WB4APR-15>APRS,WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1:stuff

My digi does this:
WB4APR-15>APRS,WB4APR-1*,WIDE1,WIDE2-1:stuff

And it DIES!  The * should be after the WIDE1, as in WIDE1*,...

This is the behavior of an 8.2.  (We know the fix is to add
WIDE1-1 to the UIDIGI list, but that should not be required in
the 8.3 code).  My ROM number is KPC3P-34F68191-8.3

*** or *** my docs are incorrectlly telling everyone that all
8.3's are correct.  My docs say that all 8.2 roms after ...7265
are OK, except for the above problem, but there is no mention of
bad code for the version 8.3's.  Apparenly there is.  Can
someone straighten this out (Cap?) so I can fix my docs?

Thanks
Bob, WB4APR
