Thanks, Chris.

I just read about the Windows CACLS command.  Is that part of your test

Kit out there.  You're all over this, I presume:

I tried to sign up for the -dev list a few hours ago, but I haven't
received my confirmation email.  I'll try again in a bit.  

Yeah, I saw your -dev discussion.  Ouch.  (Re my tax guys' recent
restore, we changed the name of the computer and of the users...)

I'll move the discussion over there. 

Thanks again, Chris,
