Thank you very much Lauri, that worked like a champ.  But why does it 
seem to be such a huge secret other than its ulitmately being usefull 
to the blackhats?

I assume that this command line (the top line above) can be used against 
any other known good (we think) but similarly malfunctioning (the 
bottom line above) program?

Cheers, Gene
