	*pong*.... sorry, missed that message (it wasn't in my
spam folder, it was in my cygwin folder.......which claims it has
over 1000 new messages (out of 2184)....sometime I don't read them

Note -- this is more likely to happen if I'm not one of the
recipients (on 'To', or 'Cc' line).   Mail directed to me
ends up in a much, lower-volume 'inbox' (one where the person
actually responded to me).    Vs. message only sent to the list
I somtimes miss unless I remember to look for it.

will try to install the new one and see if it still happens...
