I'm having the same problem. I didn't have it with 1.1.5, but started getting it when I
upgraded to 1.1.7. I also tried 1.1.6 and the snapshot from 2001-Jan-10, and both also
have this problem.

sed does not appear to have been upgraded for these releases.

The problem is quite intermittent. Today, I went all day (7 hours) before it happened.
