Thanks for this account, Marios. What you've done certainly looks
reasonable. I'm just letting you know that Adam, who is our main
Metaproxy guru, is out of the office for a little while, so it will
probably be a week or two before you get a definitive response (and,
most likely, a new Metaproxy release incorporating this fix). Ping the
list again if you don't hear anything in a fortnight.
