Well Oleg, you are not alone now. Others are seeing your problem, so it
is much more likely to be fixed than when it was just one person
reporting the symptom. If you are familiar with backend code then
perhaps you could help track down the problem. If you aren't familiar
with it, you may be interested in volunteering to test patches from
Bruce. This would be especially helpful since you have a real talent for
demonstrating this problem :)
