New Meteor Shower from Comet Hartley 2?

There is the possibility that Comet Hartley 2, now putting on a good show for observers, may become the source of a new mini-meteor shower that might be observed the night of Tues.-Weds., November 2-3. See here: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2010/27oct_hartleyids/
The dark skies around Mitzpe Ramon would be a good place to watch for it, while doing some general observing as well.

Update (11/15/2010) - No new shower was seen this year.
