I suspect that you are right.  They appear to have stoped.  However,
since I failed to find anyway of notifying them, next time it happens
they will have a copy of /bsd shoved back down the connection.  It
isn't exactly nice, but I'm sure that they will actually notice that
something is actually wrong.
