Yeah, we should detect this specifically. I've logged it as Bug #299 —
<http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=299> — and will try to look at
it for the next major revision (I'll need to rip out the current code and
replace it to do this sanely I think).

BTW, Björn, unless you're actively boycotting Bugzilla — :-) — I'd really
appreciate if you report stuff like this directly there (with a note to the
list if you think it appropriate). As the glacial response to this message
indicates, stuff reported in email has a nasty habit of slipping through the
cracks when my load average passes a certain point. Bugzilla tends to get a
somewhat higher priority.

If it's the amount of email that bugs you, you can disable most of it in your
preferences (link at the bottom of each page).
