I think it is necessary to add the notice to UPDATING because it's been
half an year since the incident day.  If it were like within last few
days, I definitely would've gotten some hints about the fix by scanning
-current (which I did).  But I had to scratch my heads helplessly until
I asked the list, and you know that the typical response of the list to
this type of inquiry has been `Welcome to Yesterday.'  If UPDATING does
not properly save people like me, what will?

So, Warner, could you update the relevant entry in UPDATING?
