Upgrading this site from Drupal 5 to Drupal 6 has proven to be difficult – as the upgrade script encounters a infinite loop. And a bit of digging may have come up with part of the reason for this.
I had to manually skip the schema number 6021 upgrade of the system module – as the update process went into the infinite loop at this stage.
Doing this is a bit dangerous – as I had to kill off the upgrade process after it had run for 12 hours (!) – and then restarted, but I then manually had to increase the base version for the system module with 1 – and then it ran to completion
I now see other problems – so I will have to try to rectify these now.

I am still somewhat bemused by the “leaf fall timetable” for the trains that started today.
This is apparently due to the very juicy leaves from local trees falling on the trains conductor rails, slowing the trains down.
I have not seen so many people running for the train in a long time.
