Could you please elaborate on your ACCESS_DENIED/viud comment?  Does "odd"
mean my answers don't make sense or does it mean that the behavior is not
supposed to happen like this? (or both)

Also, am I correct in assuming that your suggestion to try w/ 3.0.3rc1 mean=
a) My setup looks OK
b) 3.0.2a has some known issues?

If 3.0.2a is suspected or known to exhibit this problem, I'd be happy to
plough through another source build but it's a big enough effort that I'd
really like to solve the problem w/ the current production release if at al=

As soon as I get your reply, I'll build up the test scenario.
