Missing Madhaviya verses

The manuscripts of the Madhaviya Sankara Vijaya available at the Madras Government Oriental Manuscripts Library and the Adyar and the Tanjore Libraries have two additional slokas in the beginning after the first sloka and these two verses are found missing in the printed editions.

From these slokas, we learn that the teacher of Madhava, the author of Sankshepa Sankarajaya was one Mahesvara who certainly is not known as Vidyaranya’s teacher.

Why are the modern printed editions of the Madhaviya Sankaravijaya missing these verses? Let the adherents of those institutions propagating Madhaviya and Mathamnaya answer.
