Thank, Ade, for the update on this situation. Sometimes all we (the 
grateful port users) need is confirmation that you are aware of an issue 
we might be experiencing. It is, after all, a thin line between our desire to 
post something that we feel might be helpful to you,  and your perception 
of such postings as being "bothersome". For the great job you guys do, the 
least that we can provide is our patience.
