Seemed to be fine for the first 20 hours, or at least we didn't get any 
complaints from users (part of the problem with a protocol as unused as Yahoo 
is it's impossible to find anyone who actually uses it. :-/)

Was good for those 20 hours and now it's giving me "Remote Server Timeout", 
but it used to do that occasionally before the protocol switch anyway so it 
may be the fault of Yahoo themselves.
