Passport control issues - Are they affecting inbound pilgrims

More specifically, has anyone entered Spain via the ferry terminal at Santander/Bilbao in the last week. Have you been subject to these multi-hour waits that are being reported at present?

For foot passengers entering at Santander I don't see their being any possibility of a multi-hour wait, since last year when I entered their were only about 20 foot passengers in total and around half of them were either Spanish or European, with only about 10 brits in the group.

Would like to hear from anyone who enters via this method in the next couple of months. I am leaving at the start of October, so anything related to strikes should hopefully have blown over by then.

Also on a side note, maybe I can get a Spanish passport stamp. I haven't got any stamps in my passport. :/
