Thanks for taking the time to reply, Kurt.
Just for the record; it took exactly 9 attempts before returning 200. :-(
That's roughly 10 minutes, but closer to 15 in real time.
But at least it finally worked. :-)
It'd be nice to discover *why* this is a problem. Is it just *my* servers
IP's... ?

Thanks again!
