Not sure how applicable to NANOG this is, but the below thread has 
started on another list that I am on, and I thought someone listening 
here from RR.COM might be able to help.  If you think you can assist or 
at least want to find out more about these issues, please contact me 
off list and I'll get you in touch with those effected.
