I'm game. Provide me a space for an HTML file. I'll read the list and try
to keep it up to date with bugs and any possible workarounds.

My fear was of the unknown, the message that might be. It wasn't that I
didn't bother. I spent an afternoon debugging the problem, but I didn't
feel comfortable discussing it without knowing that it wasn't somehow
something stupid I overlooked. I came forward with the Mutt/Vim problem
readily, since I knew it worked previously.
As for the bug page, let me get it up before I start dealing with
synchronization and locking issues.
