I don't use the group selection - because this is where
you get into trouble.  Under certain circumstances
causes pirut to blow up.  Try to pile up a LOT of
packages quickly with the GROUP line and watch it
blow up.  I'd have to try it again to remember the
details but it was too painful that I don't want to
go there right now.

Note that when you make a selection for installation
and follow through to have the selected packages
successfully install, the pruit program immediately
terminates when I wanted to select more packages
forcing me to start the program over again.  In
cases where there was a PROBLEM - this was VERY
annoying because I lost the selections and cannot
remember what I selected beforehand.

Thanks for your patience and listening to my pointed
gripes.  3 days and 5GB downloads and returning back
to square one makes one really, really antsy and

Kind regards,
