Yeah, and so I asked for more information because that just doesn't make
sense to me, plus even if it does work, we need to find out why so we can
instruct folks who don't have FB.  And then there's all of the other pain
folks have already warned us with their custom Ilists.  I think the better
move is to revert.

OK, I'll keep looking then.  I haven't tried it myself.  Are folks who are
hitting this using FB 4.7 or FB 4.6?
