 As you have probably figured out by now, the only solution is to rebuild
 the browser and re-release 4.0.7 (or even better, use 4.0.8 for the new
 release to avoid confusion).

 The reason that the Tor Browser version is not just pulled from the
 torbrowser.version preference as in the past is because sometimes the
 Mozilla updater and update service code  need the browser version even
 though prefs. are not available.
