Indeed it's the reverse, and bad advice - there are things fixed in
0.15 from 0.14.
Unless Jeff claims to know an unreported bug...
btw I probably mentioned on list that I was offering 3 B2X for 2 BTC,
as I got no buyers I have improved the offer to 2 B2X coins for 1 BTC,
sold in 500 B2X for 250 BTC batches. No fork, no B2X coins.
