Thanks for the report - disinclined to fix anything that isn't a
regression from 1.3.41 though. This is a security release, for
upgraders only - so presumably people who've managed to work around
these problems. Making life easy for new users is a deliberate
non-goal :-) 2.2 is much much better for new users.
