Hi Martin,

Thanks for your reply, and sorry for my delayed response - a dodgy mail 
filter misfiled this email. /sigh

The only source I've been able to find related to Apple is from the Open 
Darwin website, which works the same as your source. ie. the only source 
I can find from Apple, doesn't work the same as their binary.

My assumption is that I'm looking in the wrong place or missing a patch, 
so if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

I shall keep looking, in any case.
