The patch probably will not fix it, unless some benign midnight coder
rampaged through the codebase, fixing bugs for me (gee, isn't that a nice
I haven't looked into it too much, but Peter did before he left, and
concluded that it was either a problem with the GameSpy code, or with the
client (ie, your) code.
It is something I plan to verify (and fix, if it's BF:V's fault) as soon as
I can.

I guess I'm partly to blame for this... I haven't been keeping up with
keeping the community posted on patch status.  The problem is, that for
whatever reason (perhaps simply ignorance on the decision-makers part) , I
was told to keep it hush-hush.  I will raise your concerns with the powers
that be -- hopefully, I can get the go-ahead to make things more public.  I
do realize the power and value of the community.

Irregardless, I haven't been posted many messages on the list because often
the post is either: 

a) "When is the patch coming out?", which, as explained above, I can't
answer (though, I will say, without any sarcasm, real soon now).

b) "I'm getting lag with >32 players", which has been answered innumerable
times (and the answer is always that we are addressing the problem in the
v1.01 patch).  Just on a side note, does anyone ever read the bottom of the
box?  It does technically say 2-32 players.  So, you should be happy with
that, right?  *wink*

c) Or, simply, the question gets answered inofficially by some of the more
vocal members of the community. 

I definitely read every message posted to this list, so you can dismiss your
concerns that bugs mentioned on the list aren't getting considered.  I keep
my TODO list pretty full these days -- no chance of getting bored here.

I hope this answers a few questions, and hopefully, very soon, I can answer
a few more.
