Note: log sent to Mikhail

I downloaded the tarball and compiled and packed to see if the issue was 
on the host.  It works as it should so there must be some difference in 
the sync to svn and the tarball release.  I installed the latest as of 
today from svn as well so you know where I am in relation to what has 
been released.
