Yes, so would I normally but I'm under pressure for a quick fix to this and a 
number of other issues, as you might guess from the OS version on the server: 
I'm trying to impose order on a bunch of inherited and undocumented servers 
running (at least) 4.7-release, 4.9-release, 4.9-stable, 5.2-release, 
5.4-release-p6, plus Red Hat 6.0 and WinNT 4.0 SP6a.
