I don't think it's that; but the communication problem with the committer
(hopefully now resolved!) and the fact that other people aren't seeing
this problem, means that it is something specific to the setup on your
one computer.  As one of the bugmeisters, I know how frustrating it can
be to see problems get reported and not see a quick response; but OTOH,
I think you can understand the frustration of anyone who has looked at
this bug report and said "gee, works for me".

I'll take this opportunity to soapbox; please, folks, when following up
to bug reports, Cc: bug-followup@ and not freebsd-bugs@; the former will
get the information into GNATS and the latter won't.  (In either case the
posting will make it to freebsd-bugs@).  I think this might have helped
in this case.
