a final note on this...if I directly put

UpdateURL=http://www.openoffice.org/ProductUpdateService/check.Update<http://people.apache.org/%7Earielch/ProductUpdateService/check.Update?pkgfmt=rpm>

in my versionrc file, it works per Ariel's comments -- 'No Update
Available".

However, my redirect via /etc/hosts causes the weird result. So maybe
something is not quite right with this (???)
