Some, but not much.  I am once again theoretically fowarding messages, and
I have been since perl-5.8.6-2 on January 13, but they seem to be
dissapearing into the ether.  I haven't had time to look further yet.

I did notify cgf that I wasn't sure I could continue to provide this
service because of changes in corporate policy (the ability to use
procmail and we are moving to MS Exchange :-().  So, if there are any
volunteers...?  Otherwise, I'll try to track it down later this week after
a few deadlines.  Sorry...
