not sure... After becoming aware of the issue, I checked it against the
archives of the (old) lists, where all the messages neatly line up
(hours) before I see them in my box ;( Some of them get delivered
within minutes, though -- strange...
I guess, I'll simply wait and see if the problem goes away by itself.
Sometimes, these things come and go as the weather. In the meantime I'll
check the archives before replying...
