[mesa-users] make that 4569 for mesa

I just found and fixed a numerical roundoff problem in star adjust_mass.
Not something that shows up often, but Mike Montgomery had an example,
and I was happy to find a fix, so it might as well get out now.

If you already got 4566, you have a choice:
either ignore this for now and get it in the next big mesa release, 
or I think you can safely do svn up -r 4569 rather than a fresh checkout.
That should only change star, so you can then do
cd star/test ; ./mkx
That will make and export a new star library with the correction in adjust_mass.
