Glad to hear there is a confirming opinion as well.

I had been working on some changes for the way the choose list works as well 
as some for the download progress meters and had been keeping myself on an 
old version so I had lots of stuff in the choose list.  I finished my choose 
changes and submitted them and was working on the download progress meter and 
in testing it (the final version I thought - I downloaded and updated to the 
current versions.  I believe I was still cygwin 1.4 or 1.5 and can't remember 
the rest.  I am currently in the process of attempting to roll back what I 
believe to be my original version and see what happens.

I got as far as thinking it was stat.h related and also found a stat-dj.h but 
Beyond that I am really new to C++ and using my work on setup as a teaching 
aid.  I too have that honey do list for the weekend.
