Not really. Isar-Ref was the non-traditional one. All other documentation parts did exactly what Isar-Ref does now, which is what we do in all other Makefiles that refer to a logic image (and which is why the other ones worked).

You're right that it does only treat the symptom, though.

To avoid further confusion in the future, I will discontinue this old Poly/ML version altogether and dispose the dummy versions of multithreading and timeouts.

Yes, that's a good idea.

That is indeed strange. I'll see if I can track it down.
