So I initially set "ACLSORT=YES" and that didn't help.

Toggling it to "ACLSORT=NO" seems to be helping. I haven't 
received another annoying update in almost 3hrs.

when it began.

Yes, this still looks good.

I'll try this if I get another update. But nothing in 3hrs, 
so it's looking better than the last 24hrs.
