Larry/Joe, I sent an email to you two directly with an attachment
yesterday -- did you get that? It looks like the library in question
hasn't changed since r17442, so the library file I created may well
work with your installations. Let me know if it got blocked by a
filter and I'll try to find another place to deposit it (if you want
to try it).
