This one ran and ran. Apologies, though, for failing to update its elset
in my dklist and select files at the hourly interval I intended - put it
down to the failure of OIG's WWW service, and teething troubles
following the OS upgrade at my end.

The final (I expect) elset is:
IBol 2 Molniya r 2.0  0.0  0.0  3.9 v            137 x 111 km
1 24294U 96050D   98207.53770378  .26655949  90238-5  11164-3 0  8142
2 24294  62.7084  72.4642 0019991 231.5644 128.6337 16.55951857106132

I suspect re-entry came soon after the perigee passage on this rev,
possibly at about July 26.58 (~14h UTC) along a track from the deep
South Pacific towards Costa Rica in Central America
