Despues and Apud

From:Adam Walker <carrajena@...>

Does anyone know where the first "S" in despues comes from? The VL original was
supposedly depost or depositus giving French depuis, Portuguese depois, Italian
dopo and Rumanian dupa. Only Spanish has this extra "s". Is there any
identifiable historical reason or was it just Spanish whimsy.

Also did Latin apud spawn any childrean besides French avec from apud+haec?
