Thanks Mike.

I am not bothered at all that my forwarded packets don't make it. I 
certainly don't need to find ways of getting them to APRS-IS faster, but 
thanks for the advice anyway.

When I looked at the captured packets on APRS-IS, it seemed to me that 
mine were getting lost. I wondered if I had something set up wrongly.

If other stations are getting the first packets in, that is great.

If the APRS-IS didn't work this way, then I would see a list on the 
findu site of duplicate packets  from various Sgates.

Your reassurance is something of a relief. I am rebuilding much of my 
house and running an Sgate is a little awkward. It is good to know that 
it won't matter much if I stop because all other ZL and VK Sgate 
stations are copying the packets anyway.

It's all good.
