Just in case it wasn't clear, I'm talking about the challenge itself, not
a challenge forwarded to complain about it.  So far, I haven't seen this
happen on baypiggies, and I would expect that someone as careful as
Marilyn probably won't cause that kind of problem, but because I have
seen misconfigured challenge systems do that, I felt that I needed to
make a Pronouncement.  ;-)
