I don't WANT to it as I suspect it woudl be bad.. but the time wait is
getting to be insane at times.
My current solution has been to copy it the config.db to a system that
deos not emailing (or much of anything else) and do the work there then
copy it back.. ugly .,. but I managed to get it sorted out...
