I do, and it is not -- it is built nightly.  The update does not
succeed *every* night, but I see that it did succeed last night, and
it generally has when I check it, which leads me to believe that it
should be relatively current.

Redownloading it is doing nothing but put extra, unnecessary load on
the Pidgin servers.

You did not try pulling anything from Pidgin via monotone a year ago,
Pidgin has only been using monotone publically for about five months.
Please don't lie to me, it will do nothing but make this more painful.

As I suggested, make sure you are allowed to connect to monotone on
your end -- it certainly works for everyone else.
