*grin* That's ok, you sometime hear things that you usually wouldn't when 
the record repeats. I'll try the -i flag, but I have been unable to build 
the kernel, perl, apache and ssh.  And I haven't had a problem with ssh 
to this date so I think there might be something basic really wrong here.

If the -i does not give a clue I will wait until the next snapshot, do a 
full binary upgrade and then try again.

thanks for the help!
