Yes, sorry for this.

Percona is often forgetting to update the XtraDB version field.
I've submitted bug reports about it, and, as far as I remember, they
wanted to introduce some kind of a script of a trigger to make sure the
version is always correct. But apparently they did not.

"Percona-Server-5.5.34-rel32.0 merge" means that I took XtraDB from
Percona-Server-5.5.34-rel32.0.tar.gz source tarball.

But XtraDB version in that file (in storage/innobase/include/univ.i) is
still 29.3. If you'd look in Percona Server, XtraDB would, most
probably, announce itself as 5.5.34-29.3

In our sources it's 31.1 because, apparently, I've updated the version
during the previous merge, but forgot to update now. I'm not much better
than Percona when updating versions :(

I'll add a test to ensure this won't happen again.
