[p2-dev] Using one agent to install a different product

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if this is an acceptable use of the director.
1. D/L eclipse 3.5 (Say M5)
2. Create a 3.4.1 repo

Use the director in eclipse 3.5 (./eclipse -application ..director.. ) and point it to my eclipse 3.4.1 install and install something.

I realize that metadata may not be compatible, but that it not the problem I'm experiencing.  Essentially, when I do this, I get a bunch of errors around IUs with version numbers like 3.5.0 (200902..).  So even though I pointed it at a 3.4.1 repo (and pointed my p2 data area to a clean dir), bundles from 3.5 are being found (and provisioned).  

Can I use the director in 3.5 (M5) without using the bundles / IUs there?

Is this a bug, or just a lack of understanding on my part?
