Thanks.

Did the update a few days ago. Question on the update site though. I've got the Automatic Update set to download and notify me when it's ready to install (DSL connection always on), but the update was posted on Feb 12, and the notification didn't pop up until Monday (Feb 18). Any idea why the lag time? Or is it Automatic Update only checks during certain times of day or on certain days?

The reason why it was 5 days later that it was downloaded is because if the testing process they go thought before they release a security fix. Apprently they have to test it in all lanuages and all different OS types before release.
