Hi Michael,
  Thanks for your response.

It identifies itself as 1.0.0+ as stated; looking at the
packaging data on Ubuntu:

It looks like it came from git rev 55f6c88, which I've not looked for
yet, but from the package dates it looks like it could be from february.

If you're fairly sure this is fixed in newer iPXE, then I'll put
an ubuntu bug in asking for it to be updated.  Should I suggest
the latest version or is there a particular point that would be
good to take?
