Regarding ATEL #1102 on the Swift transient SWIFT J195509.6+261406, we have two corrections.

First, the actual trigger was on 10 June 2007 20:52:26 UTC, not 06 June as originally reported.

Second, we drew a connection to another source, V4641 Sgr, and called it a "supergiant" system. J. Orosz points out (priv. comm.) that V4641 Sgr is likely to have an intermediate mass donor (~3 M_sun) which has just recently left the main sequence.
