Sure do.  I keep these systems fairly up-to-date.  This problem has been going 
on for a few months now.  Just getting a few minutes to work on it now.

In particular:

  Installed: 1:0.9.19-0ubuntu4.1
  Candidate: 1:0.9.19-0ubuntu4.1
  Version table:
 *** 1:0.9.19-0ubuntu4.1 0
        500 http://apt.interlinx.bc.ca karmic-updates/main Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     1:0.9.19-0ubuntu4 0
        500 http://apt.interlinx.bc.ca karmic/main Packages

I was for Jaunty, but not karmic.  I guess it's certainly worth a try.  I will 
do that.

Sure.  I will just enable that repo and upgrade everything to it's packages.

And that seems to have taken care of it.

Thanx Daniel!
