Thanks, Chris. Unfortunately I don't have access to a Linux box
right now. However, last time I applied the patch I received a
message that the process 'stripped' the CRLF from the patch file
and it applied.

How odd. I wonder if there is a difference in the patch program
(updated version or whatever) or something else that makes it
work for me, yet fail for you?

I'll check it out further when I can. Thanks again, Chris.
