I haven't run into this yet...I'll have to check my latest project
tomorrow when I log in to see if I've lost anything. Thanks for the
head's up :-)

I expect to hear about delays every now and then...but I thought the
earlier message said that support didn't answer the questions. I'm
tired, though, so maybe I shouldn't be trying to answer questions
right now ;-) (BTW, the folks on the AuthorIT User's Group on Yahoo!
responds fairly quickly to questions.)

Do you have any metrics on when the limitations hit? Some of my
clients have 20+ users and thousands of objects (as in, 30,000+) and
I'm wondering where the limits are.
