 Here is a fix:

 We also need to decide if we want to do anything special to fix
 installations that have been affected by this bug. When we ship a new
 version of HTTPS-E, the incremental update will fail for such people
 (because the incremental MAR will try to patch files and find that they
 are missing) and things will be fixed when the full MAR is applied. But we
 could force an update of all of the HTTPS-E files to make the upgrade
 smoother and to avoid having to wait for a new HTTPS-E version. Kathy and
 I think it is OK to just let the fallback to a full update occur.
