Aleksandar,
Its the result of reading something about an app I know nothing about 
and attempting to head-off a problem before I get there.
In retrospect what I read, and the follow-up google searches that showed 
there might be a problem, were from people who knew less than I did.
But that is the internet - help files and directions written for people 
who know what to do, and help queries from the lost, who don't even know 
what terminology to use when asking for help.

Dave
