thanks Isaac, 
you are absolutely right about my versions conflicting.
can't wait to get home and update, hmm, why wait until I get home, i'll 
start compiling now.  gotta love ssh.

perhaps you could put in an initial check for matching versions between 
the frontend and backend and give a nice friendly puke on the frontend if 
they don't match.
this may become more of an issue once people have a few frontends on the 

just my 2 cents

You're running an older cvs checkout on the backend than you are on the
