Rob -
Thanks a lot for your bug reports; I'll buy you a drink at the web conference.

I fixed those problems just before I left for my flight, and didn't
have time to mail you before my ride dragged me away from the

I've also got code to make the dates nice and pretty again - however I'm redoing
it due to compatibility problems between 2.3 and 2.4 (strftime is not
multi-threaded safe under 2.3, which is why I didn't use it originally). The real
problem is tzset, which is called by most of the date formatting routines,
and which messes with global variables without locking them under 2.3.

I'm currently in England at Sunsite UK which lives at Imperial College
(sunsite - it's everywhere you want to be). I've been doing some
patching and may do some more stuff later this week. I'll be checking Email
reasonably frequently. If you need to contact me, I can be reached at
+44-81-500-3000 (fax/voice) and +44-81-500-0067 (voice only). The UK is 8
hours ahead of Mt. View.
