Waiting for editing server....

I have the same problem, ever since season 8 launched.
At one point cypticfrost said he would look into it, but that was a month or 2 ago, and I have not heard anything.
Every few patches (especially if those patches contain any "foundry fixes") I try to edit my old missions or create a new mission, but I always get stuck on "waiting for editing server to startup and patching foundry updates".
If I do a "netstat -n -b" while the message is displayed I get a dozen or so connections to various cryptic servers all with a "waiting" status, plus one connection "established" (probably the active login - at this point I am still connected to some server). After a minute or two all the "waiting" connections die, and the one active connection remains. Again, I strongly suspect that this is just me being logged in, or possibly the connection to the chat server.
If somebody at cryptic actually cares I can provide the exact IP adresses and port numbers.
