Just glanced at this today.  It's a little difficult to see just what's 
going on here.  I assume the difference is the "Advanced Version 
Selection" box at the top of the chooser.

If I have it checked, it looks like behaving as it has been - the 
versions spin thru different levels plus uninstall, source, keep.  I 
don't see anything "advanced" there.

If I have it cleared, in "Partial" view the versions don't spin; in 
"Full" view I'm not sure - they spin then stick at a particular version 
I think.

Nothing happy here, IMHO
