Hum, okay. I’m trying to deal with that, as you suggest, but
I’ve got a really huge stopper here. After all that, and it
didn’t work, I reduced the code and diff… until I got to this:

A page in a test wiki on a test machine. Same page. First I set
	$wgDefaultSkin = 'monobook';
and get sshot49.png (colour reduced, to make this mail smaller).

Then I set
	$wgDefaultSkin = 'fusionforge';
and do the following changes in the filesystem:

cd /usr/share/mediawiki/skins
cp MonoBook.deps.php FusionForge.deps.php
cp -r monobook fusionforge
sed -e 's/MonoBook/FusionForge/g' -e 's/monobook/fusionforge/g' <MonoBook.php >FusionForge.php

Then I hit Ctrl-R in the webbrowser… and get sshot50.png (same).

What piece am I missing that seems to be needed for a theme in 1.19?
