Thanks.  I've mailed them.  My CentOS box spends most of its time doing quite 
mundane file/print/IMAP serving.  Just occasionally I have something that 
needs a bit more oomph than this laptop can manage, and I turn to the CentOS 
box for those.  It's relatively rare, so this hasn't been a high priority for 
me - just a niggle.
