Eventually I agree with Mr. Rod Alston, The 1.1 version, just published, includes the second movement with all g# except when they are explicitly natural (measures 33 and 34).

then I think a lot of Gs need a sharp adding inn the second movement - they appear in the score as naturals, but my ear would expect them to be sharps

The second and third movements are in A major, but in manuscript the key signature has only c# and d#, as usual at that time.

Is the slow movement not in A major - so needs a change of key signature, or mostly g# in music...?
