Yes it is a grammar error.

Use the svn blame command:

$ svn blame chapter09/reboot.xml |grep lets

   7228     manuel   <para>Now that we have said that, lets move ...

That was done 12/18/05.  It went back to rev 4648 (02/19/05) and that 
was brought over from the testing book we had at the time.

Finding the testing branch, it looks like it was first added at rev
4451 (12/22/04).


I'll fix it at next commit.
