	If this is true - if this represents a failure to rebuild the
index, instead of a failure to accurately record when the index was
rebuilt - well, actually it's a problem in both cases just a much
bigger one in the former.  Please test to make sure (for example,
are these messages indexed within 48 hours?) and if true file a PR.
	You may be on to something.  Messages I sent to ports@ on
Tuesday have not appeared on the index.
