I don't think so Simon. I can permanently apply a ptf as soon as I put it
on and not have a later ptf.

True, but I said a PTF could be applied permanently. My comment about a later PTF was intended for the usual case of temporarily applying PTFs. Re-reading my comment I see I could have been clearer.

When a later PTF is applied any earlier ones that are temporarily applied that are superseded by the later PTF are permanently applied and marked as such. Contrast this with the case where the later PTF is applied but the earlier PTFs have not been applied. In this case the earlier PTFs will be marked as superseded.

On the one that says superseded, what ptf superseds it? I bet the other
machine does not have that ptf.

Which is also what I said in the first paragraph of my response.
