I just wanted to say that Anthony's patch worked perfectly for me (so far) 
and my current crisis is averted.  I'm closely watching the running system.
want to thank everyone who provided assistance.  

This is yet another example I can use to point out the benefits of open

and deployed less than an hour after I decided to use Anthony's patch.
so much.
