Hi Steve (and others),

(Didn't reply all previously, and adding more info)

This box is on 10.0-RELEASE-p9 #0 r272290
(and about to get to p12 today or tomorrow).
(Sorry it didn't occur to me to mention that in the original email!)
This is on a production box for us, so it's definitely not CURRENT :-)

I will file a bug report too, thanks.

Thanks for your help,
