Ok, stopped....anyway, good to know it's updated that often: it might be a
"last one shot", if I can't solve my issues :)

Sorry, no offence meant....what I meant with that "one year" phrase is I
never succeeded pulling down from Pidgin's trac since the first day I tried
to (and I believe it was a few days after you got it working,
really)....sorry again for exasperating was a figure of speech,
and I was not properly thinking about its consequences....

I'm checking again, but, as I said, Monotone pulls down from its own
trac....I'm quite baffled, to tell the truth.
Any other idea I might try?
