Hi Konrad,

Thank you for pointing me towards the previous discussion.  The last time I
searched my archives I don't think I understood where the problem was coming
from, and so I overlooked them because I searched for the wrong key terms.
I apologize to the list if I sounded frustrated earlier - it is a testament
to MMTK's utility that I expected the task ahead of me to be quite easy and
fun, and quickly became frustrated when I encountered this hiccup.  Thank
you for your advice.
