Wow, thanks Keith. I will try that out later today and let you know how
I get on.

I'm fairly certain the one that comes with FC2 does because
/etc/prelink.conf has lines like

# Directories or files with `-b ' prefix will be blacklisted.
-b /lib/modules
-b /usr/lib/locale
-b /usr/X11R6/lib{,64}/X11/xfig

in it.

Yep. I've suggested it in the support ticket I opened with VMware. Sadly
my support options have expired so I had to post the ticket under
"Entitlement: No Response Service Request". If I'm lucky they might
respond anyway, but I'm not entitled to a response. They do claim that
the ticket looked at by their engineers though.

Best, Darren
