BTW, it is absolutely impossible for us to be "out of the loop" in this
instance.  Yes, it is great that there is a conference and that you guys
are getting face-time.  That doesn't mean that it is valid to decide what
the correct solution is without bringing it to the list.  If you think
that we are going in the wrong direction, then please tell us WHY we are
going the wrong direction.  I personally read this paragraph and basically
started reading the rest of the message with the intent of proving you

The reality is that your solution isn't that far away from my solution.
But, mine came with a very exacting explanation of what the test was doing
wrong.  If you would please explain your logic, we can have a technical
discussion about the bug now.
