Done, and yes, that was it. Which is weird, because I really thought I'd 
cleared it out the first time! I"m still having trouble figuring out how 
to test it without installing it, but it's not so hard to put the old 
one back if I want.

Now I get:

FAILED (KNOWNFAIL=4, SKIP=1, failures=2)

and the two failures are:

How tricky is it? If someone tells me where to look, I might be able to 
poke at it, though I may be out of my depth.

nor do I sue them, so I guess I don't care -- setting it as KNOWNFAIL 
would be fine with me!

thanks, and thanks to everyone for a another fabulous release!
