Thanks for the prompt diagnosis.

It occured on my first test after I compiled it.  I then repeated the 
regression test and couldn't get it to happen again and was thinking maybe 
it only occured on a fresh install.  I was about to do a fresh install, 
when I got it to fail again on the 24th "make check" according to my 
history file.

I probably should have scripted it...
