If we don't here something official-like on either of your questions by 
tonight, I'll start digging in a few different ways and see what I can 
come up with. I can't answer any of these questions myself.

So, Adam/David/Jeff (er, Duncan/Nugget/Bovine), care to comment 
'officially' on some of this, and save all of us the trouble? ;) There 
have certainly been enough comments in the last month about disappearing 
blocks. It would be great to have some official comment on it, including:
     1. What the most common causes are, of AWOL blocks
     2. What's the remedy in the situations that HAVE a remedy?
     3. Can you, or the programmer, confirm the bug that Rask 
         has just reported? That would be nice. It's entirely 
         possible that it's specific to the client he's working
         with, but not necessarily. Lots of the clients share 
         some common code. :)
