Its been showing up since at least 5.24.0 for me on linux ( That is,
before 3dfcef7e97bf1b516f )  , but I have special circumstances that
cause the frequency of appearing: One of our patches changed the
MANIFEST, which causes the *need* to resort the MANIFEST, which causes
the build order problem about 10% of the time.

( Granted whether or not we need to patch the manifest is a separate
issue, however, its just how we came to know of it, and will be glad
to see fixed )

If there were other things that happened which caused the manifest to
need re-sorting, it would cause the same problem.

3dfcef7e97bf1b516f just appears to have shuffled the deck enough that
other people see it now as well.
