OK, here's a run with debug, starting just before the point where I
tried to delete an item:

(This doesn't generate an error in the client, but there are
uncommited changes in the git repo.)

However, I've just noticed that I've been running an old version from
the keithp repo, and the Debian/jessie version 1.4 doesn't suffer from
this problem. It does still have lots of SSL timeouts across a LAN,
but I think I can blame Thunderbird for that; the other programs I use
to talk to Calypso don't have that problem.
