Thanks for the guess Matt. I've added a Releases.gpg and it did not
make any difference. Traffic's not the issue - I download all new
upgrades early each morning automatically and they go into this local
archive so that when I get up, a distupgrade used to flash by - not now
since it has to grab them all again :-(
I'll have a look at apt-proxy.
