Ah. It may also have been that the download failed for one
reason or another, and then the files didn't get updated for
another day or so.
If it happens again, just try removing the blocklist page(s)
in question and PmWiki will re-attempt the download.
Also note that some of the blocklists (e.g. chongqed) place
a limit on the number of downloads per day -- once that limit
is reached it's not possible to download the blocklist until
the next day.
Anyway, I'm very glad it's working now.
