When called interactively, `version' (an alias for `emacs-version')
will use `message' to display its output (causing it to show up in the
*Messages* buffer) in both the RC branch (that will be 21.3) and HEAD.

Does `emacs-version' in 21.2 have this snippet at the end?

    (if here 
        (insert version-string)
      (if (interactive-p)
          (message "%s" version-string)
