Fixed the last XMPP bug I know of. Turns out it was not specific to XMPP at all; the assistant could forget to sync with any repository on startup under certain conditions.

Also fixed bugs in git annex add and in the glob matching, and some more.

I've been working on some screencasts. More on them later.. But while doing them I found a perfect way to reliably reproduce the webapp hang that I've been chasing for half a year, and last saw at my presentation in Australia. Seems the old joke about bugs only reproducible during presentations is literally true here!

I have given this bug its ?own page at last, and have a tcpdump of it happening and everything. Am working on an hypotheses that it might be caused by Warp's slowloris attack prevention code being falsely triggered by the repeated hits the web browser makes as the webapp's display is updated.
