How is it possible to rebuild the status file other than by using one
of the 3 month old "yesterday.gz" backups?  A filesystem crash caused
the inclusion of binary crud into the current and last two versions. It
would be preferable to generate new, rather than recycle an old file.

An old system, Debian Bo, and for some reason archive.debian.org is no
longer answering. Is it time to wipe the disk clean? It's been running
since 1994/5 (Rex?) and this is the only thing wrong with it. :(

The other box is a Woody. :-)
