   No, the age of the sup binary is irrelevant.

did sup say it was "Updating" or "Receiving" the files ?  if it says
that it is updating, it just means that sup is noting that this file
is already upto date, *NOT* that it is downloading it again.  if it
says it is receiving, then, it is actually downloading the file.  i
just supped a couple of hours ago and i got everything updating, but
very few receiving.
