### OSCOLA BibLaTeX footnotes missing commas before pinpoints

I have found what I think is a bug in either BibLaTeX or the OSCOLA style. When pinpoint citing a journal article (and perhaps other types of sources) after citing a book chapter, the footnote for the journal article does not have a comma separating the article start page from the pinpoint page.

This is a MWE:

\documentclass[12pt, a4paper]{book} \usepackage[style=british]{csquotes} \usepackage[style=oscola,	 citereset=chapter,	ibidtracker=true,              backend=biber,        babel=hyphen]{biblatex}  \addbibresource{test.bib} \title{Test Document}\begin{document}    This is a reference to a book chapter.\autocite[]{Chapter}  This is a reference to a journal article, which should have a comma before the second page reference.\autocite[116]{Article}    \end{document}

And the required bibliography file:

@Incollection{Chapter,author = {Author, Chapter}, title = {Book Chapter}, booktitle = {Edited Collection}, editor = {Editor,Book}, publisher = {Publisher}, address = {}, pages = {}, year = {2014}, edition = {},} @Article{Article,author = {Author, Article}, title = {Journal Article}, journal = {Academic Journal}, volume = {30}, number = {1}, pages = {114}, year = {2014}, location = {}}

This is what the output looks like:

The second citation should read "114, 116" but (at least on my system), it reads "114 116". The comma is missing. How can I restore it?

Deleting manually installed versions of the OSCOLA files from ~/Library/texmf seems to have sorted this out. LaTeX now picks up more recent versions which are included in more recent distributions. (I also updated to TeX Live 2014.)
