There is no direct correlation of 1.5 bugfix tarballs and OSE svn 
releases. The 5333 is purely arbitrary (read: the revision was put there 
by manually editing Config.kmk), just to identify the tarball somehow. 
So don't try to find a correlation where there is none.

You won't find any revision in the OSE SVN repository which corresponds 
exactly with 1.5.2. The OSE SVN contains 1.5.0, and then continues with 
version 1.5.51.
