Package: syncthing
Version: 1.1.4~ds1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Since version 1.1.4~ds1-1 of syncthing I am seeing this warning on both
the syncthing web page as in the journal logs, syncing between clients
with this new version:

WARNING: Not sending symlinks to old client CLIENTID - please upgrade to v0.14.14 or newer

I see this when the client CLIENTID has 1.1.4~ds1-1 version installed.

I am not sure if this is just a harmless warning or if the behaviour for
symlinks is really being affected.

My suspicion is that the 1.1.4~ds1-1 has its version not correctly set
at build time.

On a machine with 1.1.4~ds1-1 I get:

$ syncthing --version
syncthing unknown-dev "Erbium Earthworm" (go1.11.6 linux-amd64) unknown at unknown 1970-01-01 00:00:00 UTC

whereas in a maching with 1.0.0~ds1-1+b11 I get:

$ syncthing --version
syncthing v1.0.0-ds1 "Erbium Earthworm" (go1.11.6 linux-amd64) debian at debian 2019-06-08 10:15:59 UTC [noupgrade]
