Not to mention it doesn't exist according to your server.

Let me make a suggestion, Daniel.  Since I'm apparently wasting my 
time grabbing the single tarball from the 6.8.1/src directory (but 
I'll let it come in anyway in case its good for applying that patch, 
or in case it is the really correct one), why not pull down all but 
the correct files so we cannot get the wrong ones.  I think that will 
put a stop to much of the confusion that seems to be running rampant 
here.  We are rapidly getting the impression that neither hand knows 
what the other is doing.

Cheers, Gene
