Any word from Waterloo or Princeton Dev?

Waterloo was supposed to request letters from referees - mine have not been contacted, anyone else?
When I submitted my application to Waterloo I asked for confirmation that they would contact my referees. When they confirmed receipt of my application they told me that they required the reference letters to be emailed in. This request was made by an administrative assistant, not the chair of the search, and was sent 1 week before the closing. I assume they must have made a typo on the job ad, and now have to contact everyone's references. Maybe that explains why it is taking so long…
A few other Canadian (and a small number of US) universities I've applied to have adopted the "we'll contact your references" approach - so I don't think Waterloo's request is so unusual in that regard. Maybe the admin assistant made a mistake?
I heard through the grapevine that Princeton has begun inviting people. Any news on Waterloo?
