That did the trick!  No errors, and correct dates in Netscape.  Thank 
you very much!

Now, if only I could get Netscape to default to composing and displaying 
as plain text emails, I'd be much happier.  Actually, I'd be much 
happier if I had Kmail back.  But it is completely broken in Sid, and 
has been for a number of weeks.  Oh well... it will turn up eventually, 
or perhaps I'll try out Gentoo after all...
