	Yes, Beto, I did a /bin/rm -rf of /usr/obj.  At least 3 times.
	I also tried to upgrade 6.2 (twice), now I'm grabbing 6.3 
	or whatever "RELENG_6" will get me...   

	I think it has to do with that "autoload" {or whatever} is the 
	first think that appears after the square box of options.
	I only saw the string for a n instant; it may have been overwritten.
	I'm using cvsup7.   Not good?
