This was in August 2004.  Can anyone tell me whether this has been
sorted yet?  Or whether there are any plans to fix it?

I'm showing all the same symptoms as the above comment (and thread).  So
if it has been fixed/implemented, does anyone have any idea on why it
could be failing for me now?  I'm not sure what else information I can
provide at this point, so feel free to ask for anything relevant.
