Sound like I ought to head back over to their list & see if I can 
synthesize some hate & discontent.  They have been nice, but also less 
than helpfull on this front.

I'll give this a shot too, but from what I see in the startup log for x, 
it isn't looking at anything I have done so far, so I don't have any 
great hopes that the above might work.  Sigh.

Thanks Felix.
