This looks like the problem.  Thanks for the pointer.  I remembered
something like this, but couldn't put my finger on it.  Just to make
life easier for the next guy the thread with this message (which
includes the dd hex that fixes it) seems to cover it.

Which looks like the exact right thing for me.  I'll follow up when I
know for sure, but thanks much for the pointer!
