Thanks Clay

Which list did you see this on? Maybe a good idea for you to send it to
that list also, besides me, for community memory & knowledge.

Thanks for the thought, clay, about the size 60MB being large.

My thought is that 60MB is small, compared to having bugs. I just saw a
2TB hitachi drive for $69? at Frys.com. 60MB is _nothing_ today.

For pennies of storage, let's have Ubuntu put the debug info in there, &
get rid of bugs!
