I understand the "right fix" IYO has to do with the fixing of a router
somewhere between me and cvsup servers on two different continents.
Perhaps even within my not particularly competent ISP.

Is there some tool other than traceroute for finding the perpetrator,
and what's the magic phrase to use to describe the problem in a way
that the Microsoft-quality technical staff might understand?
