Hey Woj, long time; yeah you picked a hell of time to re-surface.
More likely nobody who knows would be bothered wasting their time wading
through the present volume of bullshit infecting this once-useful list,
which has been lately taken over by a gang of clueless vandals who want
to use it as a Twitter replacement from their mobiles, shoving up middle
fingers at those trying to restore some sanity. I've about had enough.
Excuse the rant .. re your question, I don't know myself but suspect
you'd likely get a grown-up sort of response in stable@ where this sort
of issue has been popping up a fair bit lately.
