Well, I've been getting double messages for two or three weeks. I've
talked to Eric and I am not on the list twice, so I know it isn't
because I subscribed twice. :-)
The funny thing is, I don't get double messages on every message.
Usually, the time delivered is about three or four minutes later
for the second message. Sometimes the second message is two or four
bytes longer, sometimes not. It is inconsistent to say the least.

I don't know, but maybe.
