My apologies. I was not quite aware there were 2 styles of automated
builds, the one-per-day and one-per-svn-commit 'current' one. I
guess I am so used to just downloading the current build, that my
brain grouped the 2 into one entity, when this is definitely not the
case.

I stand corrected, and now will recommend the 'current' build.
