          For the past two weeks, I haven't been able to fetch stock prices
          the Australian Stock Exchange, AU (ASX) source in GnuCash.
          It looks like the ASX has changed something on their Web page that
          breaks the Finance::Quote screen scraper for ASX:

For anybody suffering from this problem, a workaround is to change the 
source of prices from ASX to Yahoo Australia.
