As do I, David.  And PA wrecked it all until I had gotten out the knife and 
removed as much of it as I could.  This is not to say that something like PA 
isn't potentially useful, but to ship a completely broken PA, and then the only 
help offered was the advice to remove it, seems to be highly counter-productive 
to getting it, or something like it, working.

However, here on this system PA was a solution (if it worked, I'm dubious) in 
search of a problem I didn't have.
