I guess thats a reasonable response to the situation :-)

I suppose so, I got over the command line back in the eighties & now
tend to do things from the GUI. :-D

Sorry, I've still got this nagging suspicion that the there was a

guarded, but I can't find it now of course :-(
So unless someone else finds it in the mailing list past or remembers
it I guess its ok.
