Bruce,

 I try not to theorise these days - except when looking at problems.
I _do_ recall reading some posts, perhaps on blfs-support, where
people had problems in virtual machines.  I did say "(if any)" - I'm
happy to take your assurance that none are needed, but no closer to
understanding what has caused the OP's problem (and still not
interested in using a virtual machine).
