.. is even more cryptic than usual - the clues and grid are mismatched. Anyone have a link to a fixed version?

Sadly this link won't work. The online cryptic is different from the print one...

Once we solved the first down and across (1D and 7A) we put them on the grid. Then we filled in obvious black squares and worked on the corresponding symmetrical clues at the bottom - and worked in from the corners. It took a while, but was fun!
