Looks OK to me, at:

Get my .log file:  http://www-texdev.mpce.mq.edu.au/GOODSON/ptest.log
and compare it with what you get...

 ... in particular, look for any relevant package declaring an older version
at your site.

The easiest way to advance from being a novice TeX user to being
an expert, is to examine the .log files of your jobs. Try to understand
all the messages that are written there, and use it as your main source
of information, whenever you don't get the results that you expected.
