Exclamation beta1: slackpkg: bug, feature or "other"?

I'm looking for other users of slackpkg to test for what appears to be a bug in slackpkg in Slackware 13.1 Beta1.

Just before updating a laptop from March -current to 13.1 beta1, I added my SBo packages to the slackpkg blacklist and checked the output of clean-system. The SBo packages were not flagged for removal.

Since actually updating to beta1, clean-system is now tagging the SBo packages for removal, even though the blacklist is unchanged.

I'm a little short on resources at the mo to test it, but as far as I can tell from, it's not intended, clean-system does call the blacklist check.

Can anyone check/reproduce?

Is this just me being retarded and missing something blindingly obvious?
