Hi Ted,

I think you're talking about the first one, which was pushed out by the [http-issues] prefix. I've since removed that, reducing the likelihood of this happening.

Also, that appears to be only an artefact of the Web interface, not the e-mail list itself.

As it stands, the mailing list archive truncates the subject of the email after a certain point (apparently no matter what the width of the window it won't go beyond a certain number of characters).  Because the issue numbers come at the end of the line, the issue number drops off.  This is already visible in the archive, even though there are only three messages.
