Thanks for the test.  The problem you note may be perhaps that you're
not emitting the right signal?  I'm not sure, my Qt-fu is pretty

But the reason I said it could be a startup flag was because I had
understood that something had to be done differently *at
initialization* if we wanted to bypass the logic Evan had added.

Was I mistaken in that understanding?  I didn't write that code so I'm
not sure right now...
