BTW:  The problem I had with STABLE (2.2.1) was with an "updated" perl package
that the check to see which of the two variable names was half-wrong.  I fixed
it by upgrading to the perl package that was in RedHat 6.0.  Rather than
trying to fix inn to account for this half-assed, never officially released
version of perl, maybe we should just tell people "you're using a broken
version of perl, upgrade".
