LOL ... actually I play with lib lots. This time however I didn't do any
failsafes :/  like creating a "playground" account with static libs and it's
own LIBPATH in a little chroot env. Becasue it was a kick toy I figured "if it
chokes I'll rebuild it" ... all the while thinking "yeah but what would I do
to make it choke? every time I've monkeyed with things I've survived and
brought the box back from the dead" .... I should know to never get cocky ....
live and learn :D

you just need to work ON it."
