I've been testing on a PHP as CGI environment (Site 5) with the  
latest SVN as of the writing of this e-mail.

I wrote a series of posts each with one trackback and one pingback  
(to two different posts on a different server).

I had cases where:
- both worked
- only the pingback worked
- only the trackback worked

I did nothing different... and I would randomly get one of those  
results.  Of note:  I never could get it to happen that neither  
worked... at least one of them always worked.

I then did another test, with 4 pingbacks and one trackback.  3 of  
the 4 pingbacks went through, and the trackback did not go through.

Next, I did a test with 4 pingbacks (no trackbacks).  3 out of 4 made  
it through (different 3, though).  Repeat of the test yielded 2 out  
of 4 pingbacks making it through.

The posts' "pinged" column is acting strange... URIs that were  
successfully pinged are sometimes not showing up.

Post metadata is empty, even though some of the _pingme should still  
be there (as the pingbacks didn't go out properly).

I'm going to bed before I scratch my eyeballs out.  Hope this info  
helps someone.
