Geoff .. There was a bit of discussion continuing on the subject on the 
xastir group.. I think it was to do with compressed alerts. It seems Ui-View 
didnt have any problems with it.. There have been some changes implimented 
with xastir code to allow for it. Just what the impact is on xastir using 
our server Ive no idea..
Have a read of some of the posts on the xastir mail list.
