At the moment there are a few exchanges that are having problems.
In particular, ASX and vwd are being problematic.  These are mostly
fixed in the F::Q development branch, but 1.06 has not yet been
released.  I'm hoping to have this out soon.

Problems should cause F::Q to return an indication of non-success,
it should not cause F::Q itself to die.  If it does, that's a serious
bug, and I'd be most interested in hearing about it.

All the best,
