Is it my setup or the mirror page that is wrong as to the current status of a mirror [I think its setup]

  I think your diagnosis is correct; I haven't had time to look at the patch
owing to pressure of gcc work, but that's about to get to a point where I can
stop for a bit and wait for a sufficient pile of bug reports to pile up and
I'll have time to do it during the rest of the week.

  Very very likely, but a) I'm not familiar with that bit of the code and
don't know how it works yet, b) I'd really like to have the time to reproduce
the bug on a test rig and then verify your diagnosis and test your patch.

  Thanks for your patience; I may be slow but I'll get there in the end.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
