I *think* that may have been the case here given the dates on the files 
(Sep., 2014), that's when I was still relatively new to FreBSD & I know 
I made some mistakes during configuration, & that's probably what 
happened. Inception date for this box was apparently Jul 10, 2014, & I 
had quite a few foulups during original build & configuration. Thanks :-).
