Well, this seems to have done the trick.  Changing it from yes to auto
has eliminated most (almost all in fact) of the validation
warnings/errors I was getting in my logs.

Ahhhh.  So "yes" just enables validation but doesn't use any compiled in
root key?  If so, this is an annoying (all due respect) and small but
important distinction.

I'm not sure about anyone else, but a yes/no/auto selector to me means
either an explicit yes or explicit no with auto meaning some kind of "do
what you think is right" in terms of making it yes or no.  I don't
typically think of it as no or yes plus some additional functionality.

Anyway, you have my since appreciation for persevering with me in my
efforts to figure this out.
