	Hmmm ... So if I disable it, I better leave it disabled till the 
next release of Fedora?

	That's where your experience differs from mine. Maybe I shouldn't 
have installed the troubleshooter??

	Third party packages here are Pine and Opera -- unless you also 
count things yum can get from livna; then there might be others. But 
certainly none of the rest of that stuff.

	Confession time : I follow this list, insofar as I can, only by 
using Gmane. 90% of it is way over my head (or concerned with things like 
games that are irrelevant to me), and if it weren't for Pan and Gmane, I 
wouldn't have a prayer of coping.

	But Gmane, unfortunately, eliminates attachments. Or maybe the 
list itself does. I see neither any script nor any URL here. If you don't 
mind sending it again direct, the address above, at swva.net, is valid. 
TIA!
