ok, i'll see how much of that i can get to today. but at this
point, are we fairly convinced that there *is* a problem? i'd hate to
go through all this, only to learn at the end that it's something
stupid i did. it seems odd that no one else has mentioned running
into this -- have you heard no other reports?
so, before i launch into this, is there anything else i might report
about my system and its current setup that someone might want to know?
