    Yes. I'm keeping an eye on it. There's definitely a numbering bug, but so
    far it's just a nuisance. The message from John, #3295, was duplicated (same
    content, same number). This has happened a couple of times before in the
    past six months. If it becomes more annoying, we can try to get the
    attention of the google techies. The fact that the message was blank (except
    for a quotation from a previous message) was a coincidence, and just as you
    suggest, I think it was just "finger-trouble".
    The other message from Gary did not duplicate to the rest of the list, so I
    think the explanation here is simple: Gary sent you a copy off-list. In
    fact, the absence of a fresh message number for me is a quick reminder that
    I'm looking at an off-list message.
    Could there be other numbering bugs? Yes. Message numbering is rather rarely
    used in these groups, so there are not many people exposed to whatever
    problems there may be.
    Please, all of you, feel free to email me off-list if you have any other
    concerns or questions on this topic.
