Yeah, I know, but with 30 or 40 key packages in the application it's a lot 
easier to use the distributor patching system than keep track of all the 
developers' releases. Having said that, I've been bitten on the bum more than 
once by the distributor supplying code with non-standard patches.

This helped a lot - thanks. 

Actually a pattern seems to be emerging - it's more reliable/less latency/more 
bandwidth at *different times of day* so it looks like something else is 
going on.
