I think I have uncovered the reason for the problem.  I have managed to 
write a script that emulates the worm's POST requests.

The script will consistently crash our site (and presumably many other 
Interchange sites), so I thought it was best to send it to Kevin off list 
rather than post details of the script to the mailing list.

Ron/Jeff - If you wish, I can forward you a copy of the script and details 
of the issue.

BTW Ron, thanks for the suggestion of adding /xmlrpc.php to 
DropRequestList - this actually led to me uncovering the problem.  Adding 
/xmlrpc.php to Drop RequestList does also stop our site falling over, but as 
you say it is masking the underlying problem.
