Dave got it working with 2.3.3.1 before he left the office today, so I
don't think this is the issue.  I think it has only been tested on
Windows lately, though.  I saw a version running on Sun about a month
ago, but it hasn't been run there lately as far as I know.  

If you can get any more information about where it is failing, I'm sure
Dave would appreciate it.
