Khaled - As usual an extremely prompt response. Thank you.
Now I have to decide what to do in my script for anyone using 7.57 or below. I wonder if there is a workaround perchance?
1. Can you confirm whether my description of the bug is correct - that autoget only works for the first in the list?
2. It looks like using *!name@address rather than nick!name@address will put a temporary trust first in the list. I will see whether this mitigates this issue.
