Well, I cut-and-pasted the chat session so people here would know precisely
what they told me, and I wasn't making it up or misinterpreting something.
I agree that I wasn't happy with it, but at least I now know why my covers
were rendering inconsistently.

I refrained from saying "then you have you a bug in your process
somewhere", because it didn't seem like that would be helpful. I'm treating
this is a bug in the lulu process that, now we've found out what it is, I
need to work around.

I do wish (and I did say this to him) that they had this restriction
carefully described on a page somewhere so that my dates would not have had
to slip by a month while I got to the bottom of why covers weren't
rendering consistently.
