Hi, Jeff...

Glad it helped get you make some headway, and sorry you've had trouble.

BTW, if you wouldn't mind copying this list with your results, whether
from applying the aforementioned patch to a built-from-source Erlang
of your own, or upgrading to a specific newer one that already
incorporates it (if such a thing currently exists---I'm not sure it
does yet), that would be great.  That way there's a Google-able record
of the problem and a solution for other folks who may encounter it to
come across...

Best regards,
