In general the locationmap does work properly. Lots of testing
was done prior to the 0.8 release.

Hmmm. There was a kerfuffle in the past about this
particular issue. Search the mail archives about FOR-876.

And the error is shown on the Forrest zone testing: and see "forrest-seed".

At one stage we worked on it at a ForrestFriday IRC session
(around June 2006) and it seemed to be fixed.

Now it is broken again and the error does not seem to be reported.
