Oops. To correct my earlier report, the Ubuntu 12.04 system in my latest
experiment is at nmap 5.21, which I assume you typo'd as 5.51, Alan. 

My report below of 6.01 was from looking at a _different_ 12.04 system,
where I'd forgotten I'd installed that from source. For reasons since
forgotten.

Okay, time to really put 6.01 on the trial system ...
