Here below follows a summary of the changeSets...

With all due respect, the original "fix" resulted in a bug report, 
and the fix to the fix resulted in a bug report, all posted to this 
listServ.  Although I asked several times, I'm not really sure what 
the first changeset was trying to fix.  Why not simply revert back to 
the original code prior to all of these fixes before adding buggy 
fixes to buggy fixes to the core image?
