Today (6 May), I received a single 1.22 MB Digest email with an
astounding *586* items, dated from Feb 7 through yesterday, May 5.

The Digest had mysteriously stopped in early February, and couldn't be
restarted even when I signed up with a *new* email address. I then gave
up on the Digest and switched to individual email.

There is obviously something quite weird with the Digest mechanism if
it can suddenly send an enormous email with everything not sent for
months, mostly for one subscriber, to a nominally *different*
subscriber: the giant Digest was set to the *new* email address.

Unless, of course, this was done by hand in an attempt to remedy the
multi-month gap. (When I had reported the loss of Digest in early
March, it was claimed that the mailing lists hadn't been changed and
there was no glitch there.)
