	I think you miss the point -- the point would be whether or
not you believe you "need" to install and use it "as is", or if consider
that maybe you want a different, "fixed" version?  Whether you fix it 
or someone else does often depends on turn-around time and ease of 
user building, but I think you answer the question -- you'd
take action to replace the code *rather* than living with it.

	Hey, I never accused, directly or obliquely, you of not using
your head...  ;-)
