I want to make the development code available, but it leads to problems
like this when I decide to start over from the production version, as I
have a couple of times now.

I think that would be the best thing.  Someone reported a bug in the
shipping version:

I'm trying my best to help existing users while at the same time not
letting the old code get in the way of the new code that needs to be
written.  Lots of problems (with my computer and other things) have kept

That was the correct code.  I ran it through "diff". No difference.  Are
you aware of any DNS blocking on your end?  No response would be the
same as "not listed".

I'm going to take a look at what would be involved in a new TightURL
release.  I think the only reason I haven't had a release in a while is
I made some database changes in the spring, and upgrade code would need
to be written.

I might be able to get this out before the end of the month.  You're not
the first person to report strange issues with the blocklist checking
code, but it's going to be hard to help you with that until then.
