Thanks, that's useful to know... so presumably when it does get going
again, I'll receive 100 digests in a lump? duplicating a few thousand
messages? But if I block the duplicates, the list server gets error
returns and automatically unsubscribes me (or so I understand). Oh well.

Before I knew about this, I wrote a C program to do it, which I'm
still using as I've had no other reason to want to install
[proc|for]mail. But thanks for the suggestion.
