Is the latest? So year | month | day

@wmayer was suggesting that the problem I was seeing was fixed in the latest version,
but does not appear to be the case for me.

yes it is all in the version string:
0.19~pre2~202003181352~ubuntu18.04.1

was build at 18.03.2020 13:52

The latest commit might not been in that version, for example if it was commited after 13:52 on that day.
But you can check in the version info and compare the git commit with the latest git commit at https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD

Can you please link to your other thread? It's really annoying that you open threads, talk about a problem from another thread, but don't provide a link to it.

And a fix could take several days to propagate to the daily build. If you can compile the software yourself, then you can get new commits immediately as they are being pushed to GitHub, but if not you have to wait. Usually the daily lags one day, but it may lag several days if for some reason the package is not built one day.
Always add the important information to your posts if you need help.

Because I thought it was a separate issue not related to the original problem.

Of course it's a separate issue. But if you are going to mention, "in my other conversation", or thread, or post, or whatever, the least you could do is provide a link to it.
