Already done, but I hadn't created the sub-zone, yet.

$ apt-get install xattr

I've a simple script I wrote, some time ago, called "save-orig."  It's
one of the first I ever drop on a new install.  It saves the named file
from your current directory to an identical path relative to /root.

Thanks, Louis.  I've done some of the above.  "Purge"d what I already
had.  Will restart anew with your suggestions.

And those of the others, here.

Thanks, everybody, for your patient help!
