It's next week now :)

So I just tried this. There must be something different on your  
squeaksource installation than on our's.

When I access " 
MonticelloConfigurations-dew.31(bf.30).mcd" it just hangs. On our  
server, for " 
dew.31(bf.30).mcd'" I immediately get a 404 not found.

Here's the current list of my versions:

DynamicBindings (DynamicBindings-gk.1)
KomHttpServer (KomHttpServer-gk.6)
KomServices (KomServices-gk.2)
Mewa (Mewa-al.13)
Monticello (Monticello-bf.254)
MonticelloConfigurations (MonticelloConfigurations-bf.26)
PackageInfo-Base (PackageInfo-Base-bf.22)
SMBase (SMBase-gk.63)
SMLoader (SMLoader-gk.24)
Seaside2 (Seaside2-avi.86)
SqueakSource (SqueakSource-bf.146)
SystemFixes (SystemFixes-bf.1)
TinyWiki (TinyWiki-lr.10)
TweakMC (TweakMC-bf.11)
