Thank you for your replies.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to upgrade
his system to .25 for a little while.  What has me perplexed is I
followed the Wiki procedure about 8 months ago before .25 came out and
didn't have the issues I'm having now.  I should probably look at the
wiki page edits.  I imagine my problem is some of wiki text changed
after .25 came out and eliminated the need for the extra steps.
