This bug has been fixed and the new build has shipped. Sorry for the 

Dropping the SotDs was a distinct improvement to our specs — it's a 
shame I had to fix it, really.

Postmortem: a simple change to fix a small bug triggered this one (the 
other bug was that the functionality that enables people to put the ToC 
in a non-default location was not working). Unfortunately, the test 
suite is rather unit-testing oriented and it so happens that the 
situation that triggers this bug was not accounted for because it is in 
the interaction between two things.

Basically, the bug could only show if there was content that justified 
generating a ToC (which was overwriting the SotD). The ToC tests didn't 
care that there was no SotD. The SotD tests had no content, and so the 
SotD did not get overwritten.

The test suite has also been improved to take this into account.
