I suspect this is the resurfacing of my old problem. I determined it 
was time based by setting back my clock and having the problem go away, 
and re-appear when I set the clock to the correct time again. I was 
experiencing all this around the new year. I was thrilled when the 
problem spontaneously fixed itself (I hadn't even refreshed cvs or 
anything) but about a 10 days ago the problem came back, again, 
spontaneously. Search for a thread with "time based" in the subject if 
you want to catch up on where we left it. Executive summary: lots of 
head scratching.
