	More than happy to - let me know what you want put where and it'll be done.

	Meanwhile, having cleared them out recently, I currently have ~3,600 PAC dumps, not a single one with the Kerberos principal in the name (every one's a PID based name).

	On the plus side, still nary a core dump:

	Yes, runs perfectly:

Large amounts of data, all looking absolutely fine.

So definite progress ...

Many thanks, regards, and have a great weekend everyone,
