  <embarrased>  Yes, I'm fairly sure I saw that or something like it, sometime
in the not-too-distant past, but I didn't have time to investigate it because
I was swamped in work and in order to get on I just forced the upgrade and
carried on with what I was doing at the time, and then after having upgraded
it went away (of course) so I never came back to it.

  Sorry for not having even remembered to fire off a quick heads-up about it

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