Ah, I see. I was confused with his changing of the the script. I
never looked at the script. I must admit that I saw the words
"Package User Management" and stopped reading. :-)

This is the third post, *just today*, with folks having trouble
getting stuff installed correctly using the package user system.

Perhaps there should be a blurb in the book that the use of
the package user management system is only recommended for
experienced builders. :-)
