OK, thanks for that, perhaps a document could be created for the docs
dir for the 2.2 series, assuming one won't be needed for 3.0 release.

I've done the "requiresignorseal"=dword:00000000 of course, it's not
possible to get far without it.  But as for the rest, where did you find
out about it?  Is it collected together in one place somewhere?

I've just had more information from the local administrator, he was
trying to set up a local default user profile, and this was causing (or
part of) the trouble.  I'm going to go onsite in the next few days and
try to get this stuff sorted out once again...
