XML-RPC checkfriends silliness

The XML-RPC interface doesn't seem to be sending back a "lastupdate" member in the struct returned from LJ.XMLRPC.checkfriends, which would seem to rather limit the method's usefulness, heh. I think the server's broken; it used to send it back and I don't know why it isn't now.

Here's what it looks like, with the xmlrpclib.py in debug mode:

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<name>password</name><value><string>(sanitized for my protection.)</string></value>

And the response:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

The code definitely used to work; I first noticed it failing this week, but I hadn't used it for a while.
Anybody know what's going on? It almost looks like I'm getting the "no!-naughty-client!" response mentioned in the docs, but it does this even if I go days between running it.
