All the tinkering I did was in Retriever::Need2Get(char *u)
I applied the old patch and changed:
String *local_filename = IsLocal(u);
String *local_filename = GetLocal(u);
which was missing in 3.1.4.
What other changes need to be made?

Here are some examples of the results URLs:
As you can see all those point to f96_p4.shtml file, but many results have
extra garbage appended to the file name.

That statement doesn't warm my heart very much;) I guess I'll have to
live with the above tinkering for the foreseeable future. Would you
consider porting this little patch with future release, even though you
wouldn't include it in the release. I am sure there are other users who
would appreciate to have at least local duplicate suppression.
