Default What happened to Pavanne?

Does anyone know why the UWP for Pavanne (2905 Spinward Marches) changed from E210000-0 in Supp. 3 (The Spinward Marches) and The Traveller Adventure to C669452-A in Spinward Marches Campaign? The rest of Aramis subsector seems to be unchanged. The latter profile was retained in MT and TNE, then reverted to the former in GURPS Traveller: Behind the Claw.

Note that I'm not asking for plausible in-context stories about why the profile changed. I'm asking if anyone has run across the reason for the actual, out-of-context editorial decision -- perhaps in a playtest?

It is more than likely a cut and paste error like a lot of the SMC, which is then sadly retained into MT by the folks at DGP.

A user on the Classic Traveller Facebook group pointed out that it's listed in the Consolidated CT Errata as an error. Your point about "copy-paste" is a good one: the erroneous UWP is identical to Violante (2708 Spinward Marches), which is nearby.

Mystery solved, albeit in about the most boring fashion possible.

Thanks, all.
