'Twas indeed Shyamal who said that. Both you and he replied to the
thread, and I replied to both of you in the same reply. So both quoted
responses were at the same level of quoting, but with a new
attribution part way down the message. So when the middle got snipped,
the attribution got confused.

I'm not sure here; what is the correct list etiquette when a thread
"forks" like this, due not to drift of subject but simply to the
asynchronous nature of replies: to attempt to bring the fork together
again and risk confusing attributions, or to reply separately to each
forked reply, which leads to both forks intermingling in the MUA's
index and can make it harder to follow?

The automatic exim run upon pon still isn't working, but everything
else is, so I'm not too bothered anymore.
